8 January 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Call me cold hearted, but this Sue was far beyond autistic, far, far ,far beyond. Sensationalized bull if you ask me.

Everyone seems to be getting diagnosed with autism, bipolar disorder or adhd nowadays. Personally I think it all stems from bad parenting/environment/relations during the crucial first 3-5 years of the childs development. Pills aren't going to help.

There are no causes of autism. They don't even know what it is. It is just a different neurostructure, celebrate neurodiversity and don't cast out people as mentally retarded for being different, for being INTROVERTED. Hell, I knew someone who was "diagnosed" autistic at a young age and treated as such all his life, you don't think this will have an impact on how that person turns out? I had 3 years of speech delay and after educating myself at uni and researching it and just living my life I can say that I am a boarderline high functioning autistic, or could at least pass as one at a psychiatrist (I was never thrown into a psychiatrist office because I did not speak until I was three and I thank my parents for not being idiots).

What? Is everyone supposed to be the same? When you treat someone like a retard for the first 16 years of their life what do you expect...
