“Schools are underestimating the abilities of children with autism all across the spectrum.”

Things are a wee bit hectic right now (toddler sleep craziness), but I hope to have some more posts up by the weekend.  In the meantime, here’s an article from Scientific American I found interesting in light of recent discussion at autisticook on the limits of the “high-functioning” and “low-functioning labels:  The Hidden Potential of Autistic Kids (h/t: Parenting With Asperger’s Facebook page)

Also, a neat new webcomic by a mother of boy with AS.

    Thank you so much for that link to Scientific American! It’s fascinating, especially the difference in IQ test scores.

    thank you. =) I agree that we all must push for ongoing adjustment of terminologies and methods of learning concerning the ‘potential’ of autistic children – autistic adults are our best allies for helping us with this. thanks for the link!
