How we unknowingly restrict individuals on the autism spectrum from becoming independent.
Often, in working on language and skills, the ability to solve daily problems is left behind. Equip your child to be a problem solver and life long learner.

Autism is usually defined by the behaviours observed in people who have the condition, but you might be surprised what actually lies behind this.

About this community

"Acceptance is not love. You love a person because he or she has lovable traits, but you accept everybody just because they're alive and human." ~ Dr. Albert Ellis Welcome! Our community is dedicated to the Autism Acceptance movement; supporting the empowerment of autistic individuals, encouraging self-advocacy and promoting our fundamental belief that: All persons are worthy of appreciation and respect without discrimination as to abilities, age, culture, education, ethnicity, gender, nationality, race, religious beliefs, political opinions, sexual orientation or socio-economic class. The idea of changing the public, private and not-for profit sector emphasis from "Autism Awareness" to Autism Acceptance will need the dedication and organization of many individuals to make this cause a reality. We believe that everyone can agree that Autism Acceptance is needed in our society to improve the lives of individuals living with an Autism Spectrum Disorder. ​ Disclaimer: The information posted on ALL of the of Autism Acceptance community topics should not be considered medical or mental health advice, nor is it intended to replace consultation with a qualified physician or other mental health care service provider.

International researchers along with academics from three institutions have established the fact that the genes that are responsible for causing autism are present in all human beings, according to a news report. The team comprised of representatives from the University of Bristol, the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT and the Massachusetts General Hospital, according to the report.

I'm sighing at this headline. This is true of all genetic variation except for lethal autosomal-dominant mutations that always kill before sexual maturity (which can't be passed on at all).

This study (good science in and of itself) is confirmation of something we already very strongly suspected, that autism cases usually do not arise from de novo mutations but are, well, the extreme end of a polygenic spectrum. But it's just wrong to spin this as huge news like that site does. It's not.

Hi group I'm going to be updating my situation now, still at home working things out but there is a light down the tunnel. I been looking for work and have some promising leads, unemployment has send and I received my forms hopefully on the 25 th after my interview I get my rent money. We been strong and believing God has a different path for me his way is much better than what I had in mind. I will continue to share and hopefully anyone reading this understands that life is easy if you let God into your heart don't be afraid and believe that with God everything is possible. Pray for me and my family because we need your love. Here is a video of my son dancing , such a happy kid , even tho he is autistic and doesn't speak well his happiness is worth more than gold to me that's my drive to keep on pushing. Life is good.
