For me, I never asked for or expected a cure. I don't want to change Ethan from the way he is right now...I might want a little help with math or maybe with the importance of picking things up off the floor, but over all, things are fine. What we do need is more education for teachers in how to deal with kids with autism/asperger's, more training for health professionals (yeah, even some of them are not familiar with how to deal with patients with special needs!), more training for police, fire department, emergency personnel, etc. I would love for us to get to a point where we do not notice the autism, just the person. DIFFERENT...NOT LESS!!!!
