Thanks, Dorinda. I worry about stories like that too. My kids have a lot of interventions, but I definitely think their is such thing as too much. I also think at some point you have to accept your child. That doesn't mean you don't continue to try to help them succeed. It just means you stop treating them like they're broken.
I was hoping it would be more about what autism looks like, and how to know if your child may have it. There seems to be so little that is public knowledge.
Okay, stepping down from my soap box...
Bless your heart.
