About Autism/Pervasive Developmental Disorders: Online Weekly
From Floyd Tipton, your Guide to Autism/Pervasive Developmental Disorders

"I feel if the media is going to use these disorders they should research it beforehand because this is just one of the many disorders in the Autism Spectrum and the public needs more awareness to understand this illness, not all autistics are like Rain Man."

Diagnostic Criteria
"The doctor doesn't feel he meets the diagnostic criteria because my son was able to read facial expression…and, I might add, the doctor told me I needed to go brush up on my parenting skills."

The Parenting Test
"Are you ready to find out if you have the right stuff to be a parent in the 90's? Get those number 2 pencils ready. And let's keep our eyes on our own papers, people."

Feel Like Crying
"I have found that the more I research about autism the better it makes me feel. At least you feel like you are doing something. I would definitely stay hopeful. Autistic children can improve with treatment and educational intervention. Good luck."
