something that should be clarified. there is no evidence of a
link between autism and planned violent behavior. #Newtown
Furthermore, Raising Asperger's Kids, wrote a post on her blog that details, with conviction, how threatening and damaging comments like these can be to the autism community. Click here to read that post. Those in the autism community are defensive right now and rightly so. We are afraid that people will gain an increased misunderstanding of autism and that it will lead to actions and prejudices that can instantly destroy the progress that has been made to educate the public. Please do not let careless comments like these target a population of people that have so much to offer. To those of you that stood up against this thoughtless claim. Thank-you.
