why label mild autism spectrum disorders??
just had a parent-teacher conference friday and the teacher brought up the possibility of an autism spectrum disorder? because he fidgets nervously, mostly. there are some other 'red' flags i've noticed, but nothing major and he's incredibly smart and able in most ways, just like a little boy would be *shrugs* he has trouble pedaling a bike....i think he doesn't get that he has to keep pedaling to keep it moving or something....it alludes him, but who cares right? also he has trouble with swimming, like blowing OUT under water....

i was a, uhhhh, "different" child....but never diagnosed with autism...in my days ADD was the biiiig one everyone was trying to get their kids dx'd with and my mom tried but i didn't have that. i could have been diagnosed with a degree of aspergers or something had it been as wildly popular as it is today.....but what would that have done for me?

what difference does it make to diagnose a 'different' kid with Autism Spectrum Disorder unless they are having major developmental or behavior issues interfering in their own and others lives?

i could see it making others more understanding of their quirks, but shouldn't we already be understanding of other individuals and their differences?

So you suck

..they try to dx everything so they can get specific with education.. but if you feel uncomfortable and are good with things.. and don't see your child having issues with school or friends .. or everyday living, what's the problem? ..refuse to have your child labeled!
