My 8 year old son has moderate autism.Whenever we go out,be it to a restaurant or shopping,we invaribly run into people who blatantly stare at him because of his verbal issues(loudness,echolalia)Most are children,but a good number are full grown adults.They are not even sly about it.I've caught their eye and gave them a WTH look,but they stare me down! How should I deal with this issue?It's breaking my heart! I see it that he doesn't look "abnormal",but when they can see that obviously he has a disability,why can't they just go back to their own business?We have a right to be out too without this happening!!
