Here is the thread I made about not wanting to "cure" my son.  http://mobile.cafemom.com/group/115189/forums/read/18305573/Autism_Cure


Someone posted a "fuck acceptance I want a cure" thread.


So - Would you cure your autistic child? Do you want a cure or acceptance?

Quoting MissTacoBell:

I want the cause which would be followed by the cure.

In the meantime, I going with acceptance.

Exactly

I don't think you CAN cure it. I think its like Down Syndrome, its incurable. I believe that if you are born with different wiring, there is nothing you can do to rewire it. I don't believe there is a cure, I believe you can help them with therapy and love and support, but not cure it at all. I think we should start accepting autism for what it is.

Progress is better than a cure...

There will NEVER EVER be a cure. Those that believe there will be one are living in fantasy land for sure and need to get over it. Acceptance is the ONLY way.
