People respond positively to physically attractive and happy presences. People who present like that get more allowances from society. It isn't fair, but it's reality. Please stop saying this, as I'm already sensitive about my looks and you're basically saying that I'm ugly. I haven't said anything...

I wish the topic was discussed as a basic tenant of moral philosophy, instead of mixing it up with religious activism. I don't think it should be either. It should be MEDICAL. Do the least harm, as doctors are trained to do. When it comes to laws, I believe the default should be the best interests ...

This is another instance of old, conservative men deciding what women can and cannot do with their bodies.  Sure, there are women on the Supreme Court; but I have to wonder if any were intimidated into going along with the men's decision. I have zero doubt that Amy Coning Barrett is a true believer...

While I understand all of the arguments in favor of abortion, but it's hard for a lot of society to get past the fact that it always results in ending someone's life. Here is the problem: It doesn't always. Removing a late term dead fetus isn't technically an abortion but seems to often get recorde...

I do think he may not be mature enough for college yet. We have been given the gift of this year to see what he is capable of and what he wants. We have an appointment with NESCA for an transition assessment in the next few weeks and I hope they can tell me what areas are most important to focus on...

After more than 15 years on this board, my unscientific sample is overwhelming in agreement with the article.

If it's a communication problem by the way, how do some Aspies here manage to have/make NT friends even in childhood? :scratch: Some people are more severe than others, some people's problems are easier to accommodate. If you were more prone to stepping on more toes than some other people with ASD ...

The natural point in time to tell your child is when they've gone through assessment. Hopefully a parent has communicated with their child continually throughout the assessment process, explaining at a level appropriate to the child why they are meeting with all these strangers and what the goal is....

Also theres a theory that autistic people were lacking emotional engagement when they were a baby. Like all that motherly behaviour like 'peek a boo!' 'hahah!' etc.

That theory has long been discarded.

Some of the behaviors are probably responses to sensory stimulus and are self-calming. Those should not be stopped, just redirected. Make your house safe for an active, climbing, busy toddler. You will be so much happier if the environment suits her needs. Other behaviors are testing for cause and e...

And today, April 14th, is also the day Lincoln was assassinated. And the day the Titanic sank. That event didnt have much to do with the Confederacy. But yeah...bad stuff seems to happen on that date. But how would one even celebrate your state's "Confederate heritage" anyway? It was only...

^^^ That is really interesting, all the history. As noted earlier, we hesitated with formal assessments for our kids for a variety of reasons. Ultimately I took the approach of getting the kids into the system enough to solve immediate and predicted issues, and then stopped. I wanted to leave my kid...

There's a children's story that repeats the rhyme:

Love you forever
Like you for always
Long as I'm living
My baby you'll be
