there should be a tab listed under "Health" for 'Autism'

there are 3.4 million children and adults who suffer every minute of every day and are not represented. they have been simply swept under the rug and down the cracks..
they should be represented because they can not do it themselves. if they are not made visible the band will continue to play on and in 16 years the Log Curve indicates 1 in 2 babies born will be autistic.. Autism is Brain Damage. who is going to take care of them, this will bankrupt the nation. we are the only country with levels this high.

2. Under Health? But it's not a disease.

 

And I do not "suffer every minute of every day", thank you very much.

3. It's beyond ludicrous to suggest that in 16 years

 

1 in 2 babies born will be autistic.

Plus, not all with autism suffer. My oldest son is an Aspie, and he is more than content to be the way he is. I once stupidly asked him if he's rather be neuro-typical and he gave me the "Are you out of your fucking mind?" look, and simply said, "No."
