I think sometimes we fear the wrong thing or we blame the wrong thing or we try to fix the wrong thing. I have a hard time understanding why people blame autism for the hard things that happen to them or their kids. I mean, is it really autism itself that’s the problem or is it something different? For example, if you almost died from eating a piece of cheese because you are allergic to it and didn’t know, you might be tempted to blame the cheese. After all, the cheese is what caused the allergic reaction. The real problem though isn’t the cheese, it’s the allergy. Cheese is delicious and fairly healthy for most people, but if you’re allergic to it then it can be a problem.
So my question is “Is autism really the problem or is it something else?”
