Ohh, I think she's trying to say that autistic children grow into autistic adults, since there is no cure for autism.

I think she is saying she has an autistic child, and never really thought about the fact that one day he will be an autistic adult.

But I see what your saying. I hope they either find a cure or that therapy does some kind of awesome work.

I know some amazing autistic adults. In fact, one of them is heading to NY to sing at Carnegie hall. Do your best. Don't stress too much about the future and the things out of your control. Focus on what you can do for him now to prepare him for life as an adult. Teach him things that he will need on a daily basis. You can do this.

It is scary considering the life most special needs adults lead. Unless they come from a very wealthy family they almost always end up in some low-end government funded group home. :(

Quoting Sarah Bare-ah♡:" Or homeless. :( I read too many blogs."


Mhm.. I grew up on the poorer side of town where the majority of the homeless people hung out, and there was something wrong with 90% of them. I remember one man with Downs and he was constantly being arrested for peeing on the street. They'd release him, and he'd just be back doing the same thing again. Nobody cared. Those people were always getting hit by cars.
