Talking to Kids About Autism

Is It Necessary to Talk to Your Child About Autism?

All kids are different, but when a child has a disability should they know? Last night on Parenthood, during a heated argument with Crosby, Adam screams that Max has Asperger's. The 9-year-old (who has yet to realize he's on the Autism spectrum) hears his father and asks what he means by it. After fumbling for words to explain the developmental disorder to their son, Adam and Kristina consult Max's doctor for advice about how to broach the subject in a subsequent conversation.

Wow, surprises me that 34% say no. Amber I agree, this should be a given. Finding out any other way than directly from their parents isn't acceptable.

I would rather have had the talk with my child before someone insensitive at school started calling them names.
