I’ve often have thought that the reason we know more about Aspergers, autism, and ADD is because now that fewer diseases are killing a lot of children, medical resources can now be devoted to making sure children can thrive as well as survive.

You know, I never thought about that but that’s a good point. Really, I’m lucky to live in this era. I don’t think I could have graduated high school if I had lived in a different time. Well maybe high school but no way in hell would I have graduated college. The resources available to special needs students (in my case giving me an accommodation to type my tests) was such a big own experiences are why I don’t like people who take for granted the progress made and also romanticize the past.
