Seriously? I can’t fathom why you want to cure my son. He is amazing and perfect. It hurts me to hear people “praying for a cure”. He doesn’t need a cure he needs understanding and acceptance. That’s what he needs. You can shove this cure crap up your ass for all I care.

I read this to my dh and he said she would miss his ssi check if he was cured

If his autism was cured, she wouldn't have anything to get sympathy about.
I don't know why any parent wouldn't want their child to be healthy.

Maybe your kid just takes after you. :)

You can't really universalize your experience.

 If you think all children with Autism act that way, you need to educate yourself.

I don't have an autistic child but my best friend does and there are so many struggles because of it. I think her little boy is unique and very special, but it would be nice for him to be able communicate better to express his needs and be understood so he didn't get so frustrated. If there was a "cure" that could help with that, I know she would be thrilled.

I adore my son..every part of him. I would also love for him not to struggle in so many things. He still wears diapers at 9. He is nonverbal and is developmentally 1. I would do ANYTHING to make his life easier. Yes I pray for a cure. I think people like you don't realize there are extreme cases of autism like my ds'. I think you should think before you say such things.

 Really?  I'm UNEDUCATED?  I'd say the 19 year of experience I've had has me fairly well educated on the subject.  Lets hear about your education. How old is your autistic son or daughter?

Wow, you're uneducated when it comes to autism.

Neither can the OP.  I'll pray for a cure for my kid.  You people can keep yours exactly the way they are if that's good enough for ya.

There is no cure.. For there to be a cure means Austism is a serious and life altering or life threatening disease in which it is not. You can ALLEVIATE symptoms by reducing with an elimination diet

 It's just a fact.  And it's very insensitive for women with high functioning autistic children to not be considerate of those of us who aren't so fortunate. 

How old is your autistic child btw?
