Totally agree its over diagnoised but also very real. There's no doubt it exsist but it can also be used an excuss for "normal" with behavorial issues.

There is no medication for autism, genius. There are medications to deal with some of the symptoms, but mostly treatment involves extensive therapy.

Don't let any of this bother you. The whole post is either for shock value to rile people up or the OP is extremely uneducated on the subject. 

Quoting sunfireprincess:

This post is insulting with all of the daily struggles I have with my son on everything!!!!!!

It is real. They can be taught to have manners, most of the time. Most high functioning Autistic kids do have manners. I know NT kids who are worse in a lot of cases.

My 5 year old is the same way, everyone who sees him LOVES him, compliments him, he is sweet, loving, and behaves... He is not medicated, and is aspergers.

Quoting ZsMommy:

My daughter is extremely polite-and I'm not saying this as a biased mom-but as the peron who gets complimented by teachers and strangers for her extreme manners...Oh yeah-and she's autistic.....

Is this degree of stupidity real or just someone being completely this insensitive real?

Autism is very real. If it was bad parenting, then myself and my 2 daughters would have it.

My son IS autistic and he has excellent manners. Don't be a douchebag. There are varying levels of autistic children. There are children who cannot speak, who rock back and forth, who scream when touched or overstimulated, who are not potty trained. Then there are autistic children who have sensory motor issues which cause migraines when exposed to long periods of loud noises, who may do an ocassional high pitched screech, and do not relate well to children their own age.

An actual diagnosis of autism from a PROFESSIONAL is not an excuse. However, these children can indeed still be taught if their parents and educators stay consistent.
