Can a people with autism be good parents?
Yes, of course people with Autism can be good parents. Autistic people are as likely to be good parents as neurotypical people, if they have Autistic children then they are all the better for them than neurotypical parents would be as they understand what it's like to be Autistic. As many people with Autism are bullied they can help children to deal with similar problems too.
Autism only affects the person with Autism - injustice can effect the family as a whole if they cannot get easy access to Autism services, but Autism doesn't affect relationships of the Autistic persons parents. This is a classic tactic of Autism Speaks, they tell people that Autism ruins families and relationships in order to frame Autism as something terrible so that people give them more money - please don't listen to anti-Autism rhetoric from… Read More
Yes. In fact, it is much more likely, because autism is genetic. My parents are both autistic; they had three daughters, and two of the three of us are autistic.
You can't die as a result of having autism. In some cases autism is so severe that autistic people may not see potential harm such as oncoming trafic or falling into rivers, but this is uncommon. The biggest risk with autism is not the autism itself but prejudice towards autism, unfortunately many parents murder their autistic children or autistic people can be abused to the point of being killed.
The parents of autistic children do not have a certain set of personality traits. They differ as with all people.
Do people who do not have autism have the right to decide on the quality for life of people with autism?
It depends on what you want for that person. If you want them to have a good life then of course go for it!!=)
A person who has autism, is born with the disorder.but it is probably passed down from the parents,meaning that the parents have it and when the child was born it had it. i am explaining it because i don't want you to think it can be passed down like a cold. but it doesn't have to be they can just be born with it by themselves.
Walk for Autism supports Autism Speaks, which is widely considered to be a hate group due to the harm they cause to Autistic people. A good Christian would not support this organization.
Unfortunately many people are trying to cure Autism, this comes largely from ignorance and prejudice towards Autistic people. Autism is not a disease but a difference in how the brain is structured, it is thus not separate to a person or something that happens to a 'normal' person, Autism is who a person is and thus cannot be separated from the person. The only way to 'cure' Autism would be to get rid of Autistic… Read More
Just like people without autism, artistic talent varies by person. Some people with autism may be very good at art, others can't even draw a stick figure.
It depends on your definition of bad. For example, if being different is bad, autism is bad. If viewing the world in a different way, perhaps noticing things that other people have missed, is good, autism is good. There are characteristics of autism that make life more difficult for the person with autism and his or her family. There are characteristics that other people might envy, such as excellent memories. Whether or not autism is… Read More
You can't get a phD in Autism - Autism is a neurological difference and/or identity. You may be able to get qualifications specializing in Autism, how much you could earn depends on your qualifications, experience, and how good you are at your job (remember the real autism experts are Autistic people - if you want to work with Autistic people learn about them from them).
Autism is believed to be genetic, it's more strongly linked to the father but can be a result of both parents genes. There are theories that Autism is not just linked to specific genes but to pairs of genetic mutations from both parents, that when paired result in Autism.
There is no proven link between genetics or heredity and Autism, but parents who have one child with Autism have a 20% higher chance of their second having it also.
Wrong Planet.net is a forum for people with autism and aspergers
There are cases that many autistic individuals have been bullied and teased. And have been judged by teachers, pyschatrist. Many autistic people have been judged in public for their behavior. People with autism have experienced abuse from parents and have been murdered by the parents. Autistic children have experience verbal abuse from bullies, teachers, social workers and other people. Many autistic people when they have meltdowns in public have experienced being mistreated by police officers… Read More
Autism awareness is simply making people aware of autism and Autistic people. Unfortunately organizations such as Autism Speaks uses autism awareness to speak negatively about autism and Autistic people to increase their profits, thus there remains a lot of ignorance about autism.
Autism can be inherited from parents with genes for autism. Autism can also be the result of the spontaneous mutation of a gene. It is suspected that a person with the genes for autism might need an environmental factor (in the womb or shortly after birth) to trigger the development of autism.
No one knows for sure what causes autism, but there's a good chance that it's linked to early-childhood vaccines. Many parents of autistic kids say their kids were normal and changed after vaccinations.
you get it from a diese called autism ... its not a good thing to have but people have it
Autism is not caused by how the parents treat their children. Autism is a neurological condition caused by genes. If a parent has genes for autism, the child could inherit those genes, making it possible that the child could have autism, but that will not necessarily happen. In addition, there are also spontaneous genetic mutations in some fetuses, some of which have no effect, but others of which can result in autism or other conditions.
if you have autism it is not defintely going to have autism but the good news is that if you have autism it is more likely your child will have autism
People don't 'get' autism. They are born with it.
There are many groups and resources out there for neurotypical parents of autistic children, but do you know of any that exist for parents that are themselves on the autism spectrum? Especially ones that have autistic people in organizational roles?
Autism can be good because a lot of autism kids have special talents that we don't have, a lot of them have a picture perfect memory.
Autism is a neurological difference and it is believed to be genetic. Even with two neurotypical parents they may have genetic mutations that when combined result in Autistic offspring.
Autism awareness is bringing awareness to autism and Autistic people, educating people about what autism is and how it affects Autistic people. Autism awareness is often used by unethical charities who claim to support Autistic people when they do not, they use this term to spread misinformation as an attempt to create a culture of fear surrounding Autism so people will give them more money.
You wouldn't, not if you cared about Autistic people. Autism Speaks is widely considered a hate group by Autistic people. They use hate speech and propaganda about Autism to increase their profits, very little of their profits go towards helping Autistic people and their families, and instead Autism Speaks support 'curing' Autism which means preventing Autistic people being born. The organization has no Autistic people in their leadership, they refuse to listen to Autistic people… Read More
People with autism have the same lifespan as someone without autism. Remember autism is not a life threatening disease like cancer.
You don't have a child with autism, you have an Autistic child - recognise their identity. Having an Autistic child isn't what makes you depressed, the fact you're ableist towards that child is making you depressed because you believe that child is worth less as an Autistic person. Get away from other 'Autism Moms'/'Autism Parents' and avoid organizations like Autism Speaks which see Autism as a bad thing, go talk to Autistic people and parents… Read More
Yes, it is possible for two Autistic people to have a child with Autism - it's also possible for them to have a neurotypical child. Autism does have strong genetic links, although we don't know the full causes yet to say how likely it is Autistic parents will have an Autistic child.
A good organization is one that is lead by Autistic people themselves, for example Autistic Self Advocacy Network. A bad organization is one that works against Autistic people, for example Autism Speaks causes a lot of serious harm to Autistic people while claiming to help.
Autism is considered a "neurodevelopmental disorder." Many parents of autistic children are trying to get the DSM to reclassify autism as not being a mental illness. Autistic people can, however, have many other psychological illness's such as OCD. It depends on what you mean by "ill"; if you're technically speaking then check with the DSM, but if you are talking in a more judgmental sense then the answer can vary. No matter what autistic people… Read More
Autistic people are normal - so yes, if both parents are autistic they may have an autistic child or a neurotypical child, either way that child is normal.
It would not be ethical or legal to do anything TO people who have autism.
Autism is not a disease - it's offensive to suggest that it is as Autism is a neurological variation, by suggesting autism is a disease you're suggesting that Autistic people are a disease. As autism is a neurological variation people are born Autistic and continue to be Autistic their whole life.
None of the above. Autism is not good, it's not bad, it just is - being Autistic is thus not good or bad either. Being Autistic (we do not 'have' autism) depends on the individual, some people have more severe symptoms than others and some face more prejudice or abuse than others. It's just like being neurotypical - not good, not bad, it just is.
Yes people with autism do repeat them self's.
about 1.5% of people have autism, which is about 46,000,000 people
After your child is diagnosed as Autistic you learn more about Autism. It is good to talk to other Autism parents and specialists, but remember that the real experts are Autistic people themselves as they experience Autism and Autistic adults have been through childhood so know what is needed to support your child growing up. Always learn about Autism from Autistic people via forums, Facebook groups, and Blogs - I recommend Karla's ASD Page on… Read More
attention graber for autism
There are no 'solutions' to autism because autism isn't a problem that requires a solution. Autism is a neurological difference, autistic people are not worth less than neurotypical people
It's not hard to fight Autism because there is no reason to fight Autism to begin with. Autism is not a bad things, it's not something people need to fight but Autism is a group of people who deserve to be fought for and not against!
Autism Awareness Month is the month of April, dedicated to improving awareness of Autism and the lives of Autistic people. Unfortunately it was championed by Autism Speaks who although claim to be an autism advocacy group actually work against Autistic people by using harmful rhetoric about Autistic people in order to get people to donate more money to them. During Autism Awareness Month it is best to listen to Autistic people themselves, and donate to… Read More
Yes, Hitler is a good example of a historical figure that is relevant to the search to cure Autism. Autism is a neurological variation and an identity, the only way to 'cure' Autism would be to wipe out all Autistic people and stop us from being born, essentially eugenics and genocide.
Not all people with anger have autism but autistic people do tend to have anger issues
There are thousands, maybe millions of people have autism. There are some people who don't know they even have it! So, it's safe to say, there are a lot of people with autism in this world.
Treatment for Autism can be more costly because it is in high demand but without enough people to actually implement treatment - there are many changes in autism treatment and a great deal of difference between someone who knows autism via academics and someone who knows autism from learning about Autistic people so there's a wide range of difference in how well treatment works. Often treatment is unnecessary, unusual or outright abusive and dangerous treatments… Read More
48% of people in north America know about autism
Autism awareness means bringing awareness about autism and Autistic people. Autism awareness is unfortunately associated with Autism Speaks who actually act against Autistic people by spreading misinformation as a means of increasing their profits.
Autism is not mental or physical per say, nor is it always a disability. Autism is a neurological difference - some people with autism do consider themselves disabled because of the way autism effects them, but many autistic people live just like neurotypical people so do not consider their autism to be a disability at all.
