Autism, Epilepsy and Self-Injurious Behavior: A Reality Based Autism Blog You Should Read
I have recently added a new blog to the "Autism Reality Favorites" section of my sidebar. Autism, Epilepsy and Self-Injurious Behavior is authored by Kim Oakley whose videos about her autistic son also provide an honest portrayal of the very serious challenges autism disorders present to severely autistic children and adults. This is not the feel good "autism is just a different way of thinking" of Dr. Laurent Mottron, Estée Klar or Ari Ne'eman. I strongly encourage anyone with a serious interest in autism disorders, especially parents of newly diagnosed autistic children and public policy makers whose decisions affect the availability of public services for autism to check out Autism, Epilepsy and Self-Injurious Behavior. While you are there follow some of the links to the videos Kim Oakley has posted with their honest portrayal of serious autism self injury issues.
