Let's start a dialogue about how we can support individuals with autism at home, school, and in the community.
There is a lot of research devoted to the causes of autism, but we also need to focus on other aspects such as early diagnosis, early interventions, transition into adulthood, financial aid just to name a few.
In my opinion, researching causal factors does little to help the millions of children and adults who are diagnosed with autism. I personally think some of the funding should be used to create resources that will help cover the cost of daily living expenses like therapy, academic support or job preparation...the list goes on.
It's time we speak up and speak out!
