I am the parent of a child on the autism spectrum and I really dislike the way they try to silence adults on spectrum and censor criticism. In addition to that, they seem to be so focused on a "cure" when they could be using their funds to help kids and adults on the spectrum to have a better life and acquire the services they need. I also dislike the scare tactics they employ that makes it seem like all kids with autism are unmanageable and violent. I think they spread a lot of misinformation about autism to scare people into donating. Thoughts? I am genuinely curious of your opinions. Especially moms with ASD or moms of kids with ASD. Thanks, and let's try to keep it civil!
