The other day I was talking with a professor who said that Autism is the "thing" that these days Americans have decided to blame for their children's failing in school.
Schools Districts are going "bankrupt" dealing with obsessed parents who want therapies to remediate the problem.
Meanwhile children who in reality have a the condition of Autism never get their therapy.
Ps I'm talking about what parents call "a mild case of Autism"

I agree. People try to find and excuse for why their children act the way they do and why they don't do as well as other children do. And ADD ADHD and autism are the things that parents know about that contributes to children having a hard time learning. And it is sad that instead of helping their children try to do better they find an excuse and make it that much harder for the children that have these conditions.
