- Autismville presents the parenting point of view, with an eye towards advocacy.
- Generation Rescue presents the biomed point of view. (No ambiguity or hand-wringing there!)
- And some of the best philosophical musings on the internet - about autism or otherwise - are by autistic bloggers. These blogs generally advocate (and illustrate!) neurodiversity.
So what's my purpose? I don't have a clarity of mission or purpose. I exist on the internet to express my confusion. I'm still not convinced my son's diagnosis is accurate, and if it is, whether it will stick. It will probably be another year before I fully accept the diagnosis.
Nevertheless, I have made progress on my journey. My thoughts on the topic have evolved. I used to think Brad was just a "late talker." However, I've come to discover that "late talker" is just NT-denial-speak for high functioning autistic. And I've discovered neurodiversity, a movement that may well touch my son's life, and a concept I find myself embracing.
