Now Reading: "This Just In: Being Alive Linked To Autism" a followup & a plagiarization

I’m a 48 year old neurotypical dad with a 14 year old son with severe, non-verbal autism & epilepsy. I created this blog to rant about autism & epilepsy while celebrating my son who I affectionately call “the king” :-).

Don't forget, not breastfeeding… (AH)
Don't forget gluten allergies. http://glutenfreehelp.info/children/studies-show-link-between-gluten-intolerance-and-autism/
I've had well-meaning people track me down to tell me that switching my son to a gluten-free diet would cure his autism.
So glad I wasn't drinking a hot or fizzy beverage while reading this.
You might be interested in this post by a "fat" activist who rips the media a new one for these latest proposed "causes" of autism and rips the so-called "study" apart for being flawed.
Do Fat Moms Cause Autism?

Thank you for posting this. I am one of those moms who beats herself up ALL the time b/c we have family style autism:( Maybe I did do something wrong. But, then again my cousin has two kids with autism. So its probably genetic (at least for us) and there is nothing we could have done about it. But either way the guilt can rip you apart.
Thanks for making me smile.
I just have to say that I love your blog. I was just commenting the other day about the epidemic of utterly ridiculous things they are linking to autism. I am 49 and my 6 year old son has autism. I am not diabetic, obese, he was not premature. I am sure these idiotic causes being published are doing damage to some parents of autistic children via guilt for something they could have done differently. Put some of that energy into finding effective treatments people! Thanks Autism Daddy!!
Lol I love it..it's sooo true..everyday there is something new that causes autism
Thanks for sharing the joy… Needed a reality check as I'm just waiting for some well meaning behind-chapeau to point out how I caused my son's autism. Never mind that I have it and he could have gotten it that way… Duh! 🙂
And by the way, if we had a big head contest I think spouse, kid, and I might win. I prefer to think of us as people who are too awesome to cover it up with a hat. 🙂
realizing now that the quip about son's head size was Emily's… oops.
Thank you for the much-needed levity!
This is awesome!!!! It's ridiculous & I love it!!!!
