    As a parent of an autistic child I cannot express how important an early diagnosis is. The problem is it is a diffucult condition to diadnosis in younger children.

    I really hope the Texnas, Schaub and Green can raise more awareness and generate the funds needed to help out the possible autistic kids in the Houston area (I live in Dallas (which thankfully has a few benefits, one being one of the best children's hospitals in the country) or I would already be calling to volunteer).

    Well done guys.

    your lady's sexdreams.
    for sure, we have a classy team. :texflag:
    have you seen these diets they put some autistic kids on to 'cure' them? some no gluten thing or something... i saw a tv show about it. i think it was jenny mccarthy's kid or something. (my description doesn't hold water i know--i blame her work on Singled Out-- but it might be worth looking into, i dunno.)


    at my psych's office, there's this 44-year-old autistic guy that comes in. one of the most articulate people i've ever met if you give him the chance to get over his nerves. picks and chooses his words very carefully. but other than that, he's basically a 6 year old... last week he'd just gotten back from his first ever trip to disney world and he was wearing one of those mickey mouse hats with the ears and a button. ballsy.... he's cool.
