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.

Back in the day, and even long before that, autistic kids would (depending where they were on the spectrum) be warehoused or labeled lazy/incorrigible/etc and left to their own devices.
