Article on Autism

Wired has an interesting article on autism. Read it.

The best line in there, from a young autistic woman using YouTube to make videos about what her condition means, after being asked if autism should be treated: "Yes, it should be treated with respect."

New word that I'm probably going to start using: Neurotypical. It's so much better than "normal" as an adjective for other kids when talking to Sabastion.
