My son was diagnosed HFA and PDD- his 'tested' IQ in early grade school was 70. He's in advanced math and science now(HS) and although he struggles socially he has changed a lot.
We got the diagnoses for the special services he receives in school but it isn't normally a topic for ourselves or with the rest of the family.

I might be dating myself but you would see this all the time with radio stations- they would play lots of alternative rock or metal and when they had enough listeners to attract advertisers slowly poison everything with heavy rotation music.

Except that 'reliable income' has become somewhat of an illusion and is more of a euphemism for putting all your eggs in one basket. If you have 2 or 3 (or more) gigs going on like most tradesmen did before the industrial revolution and one of your sources evaporates up you are not high and dry.

Of course this makes it important to run your household like a business and saving money for the future, this is alien to most consumers who live hand to mouth.
