You better start believing. Thinking it is purely a behavioral problem based on inept parenting is foolish. Spend one day with a child or an adult with Aspergers or Autism and you will change your thinking.Originally posted by: JS80
I don't believe in Aspergers
I live with Autism every day. My 6 year old is one of the most severe people around here have ever seen. Yet my 4 year old is smart and was accepted into the Magnet School for the smart kids.
While it is true that some children with autistic symptoms are not truly autistic; some are actually allergic to wheat or milk or other such foods and the allergy to them causes the brain to fire differently, and getting them off of these foods can actually "cure" them. We tried it with our oldest and she did not respond.
Either way, the teacher needs to "go get her some more learnin" about the children she is going to have to deal with in today's world.
