Autism Misinformation

Author: mom_to_one, 11 15th, 2012

As a mother with an autistic child, it pains me to see so much misinformation about autism out there. There are many ‘theories’ for the causes of autism that are generated without any scientific basis further than word of mouth. A lot of these types of theories are propagated by unintelligent people with high standing in the media.

There appear to be so many people on television without an ounce of genuine autism education that are spouting their opinions as if they are guaranteed facts. People like Jenny McCarthy, famous literally for nothing other than taking her clothes off for money, think that because they have a bit of celebrity, they are able to give their wildly incorrect and misinformed opinions on things like autism without any scientific knowledge backing them up.
