Autism cure?

Do you want there to be a cure for autism? Would you take it (if you have autism)? Would you give it to your child is they have autism? If yes, how far up or down are they on the spectrum?

Personally, I wouldn't take it or give it to my son and we both have autism.

  • IF there were to be a cure to control the over welming input of sensory information that causes these kids to shut down yes. However you also need to take in to concideration the level the autism effects the indavigual and if the "cure" would improve their level of life and function in socity.

  • I have a brother and son with autism and I would do anything for a cure. Life is hard for everyone, autism just makes it more difficult.

  • I understand and appreciate where you are going with this. It is my assumtion that you are saying...that You love and accept yourself where you are and the same with your child. I don't have autism as you do, so you have a very unique perspective. It is very interesting. I would love to talk with you more about it. I have always looked at my son, Noah , as missing half of the picture. He doesn't get all of it. It is like asking a blind you want to see. He has never seen before and does not know what he is missing. A cure is given and you place him in front of a Piccasso for the first time...or he see's his babies smile for the first time. He was fine before...but WOW...his eyes were literally opened. My Noah, is wonderful..but if I could open his eyes to more beauty in the world and to have more understanding...nothing would stop me.

  • I think that autism is caused by all the crazy shots that doctors think they have to give your babies now days.
