Do you think Autism is a form of Tourette's? PIOG

I never, ever thought of this until tonight when I was watching 20/20. There was a girl named Carly with severe autism. I was AMAZED I must say. What do you think?

  • I think it would be more the other way around.

    I watched it because I also have autism (although not as severe as hers) and I found myself nodding at a lot of what she had to say about why we do certain things. The computer -- well the internet -- has opened up whole new worlds for me with acceptance I have never found EVER in my real life, because (although, yes, I can and do speak) I communicate so much better through writing.
