We would like very much to thank all those who took time out of their lives to represent our children in congress a week ago. Thousands watched with rapt attention as the hearing regarding the federal response to autism got underway. The audience was different this time, though. Among the whispers and hum of activity that exists among "normal" crowds one could hear an occasional yelp. An inappropriate laugh. The sound of limbs flapping and the strange wake of energy such unnatural movement leaves behind. Congress members expressed that perhaps the overflow room would be an appropriate place for some.
This is life in the overflow room. This. is. Autism. Please, do not look away. PLEASE ACT as our government has thus far failed to do. Let them know better diagnosis DOES NOT EQUAL APPROPRIATE MEDICAL CARE. Autism. is. medical.
