What Have You Always Wanted to Know About Autism?
See? That kind of advice is gold. We're not keeping any secrets here, but I've never sat down and had That Talk with Little Dude, either. He's only five but he's wicked smart and I know I need to work it in soon. And I will totally explain that it's not polite to call other people neurotypical. Gold, I tell you.
So, what have you always wanted to know about having autism? It's okay if you're not a parent of an autistic child. It's autism awareness month, so if you just have a random question, we're all about raising awareness.
Leave your questions in the comments. I'll sort through them, edit, and e-mail her a condensed list. She's in college, so she has other things to do besides answer a hundred questions from us. Although she's probably not at the frat parties because she still hates loud, crowded places. (Oooh, yet another bonus of autism from a parent's perspective.)
