About once a month, I see a teacher or a para injured by an autistic child. Usually bite wounds.

Wow.

It's long; but this is one of the best articles about autism I have read in a long time. And altho it was written some years ago, it's still up at the top of google:

The Geek Syndrome Autism - and its milder cousin Asperger's syndrome - is surging among the children of Silicon Valley. Are math-and-tech genes to blame?


And for those really interested in autism, here's another from Wired magazine:

Made it thru the first article!

I understand wanting a ‘cure,’ but the genetic engineering to achieve its elimination gives pause. What if someone down the line decides that red hair or green eyes should be ‘cured?’ Or any genetic trait? Short people got no business. All rather frightening. I think we can only fool around with God so much.
