That's the most absurd and soppy thing I've read all day.

It may be true for high functioning autistic children, but it's cruel to put guilt trips on parents who have autistic kids who can't speak or be potty-trained for wishing their beloved children were not stricken with such a horrible disorder. It's a 'way of being' as much as Down Syndrome is.

(and I speak as someone with (diagnosed) Asperger's and two severely autistic siblings.)
