Autism Through the Eyes of Parents

Left Brain/Right Brain is a blog dedicated to autism.There is a wonderful video on it posted October 3, 2008. As a slide show plays autistic children, letters are read by the parents on how they love and believe in their kids. This was on the heels of a forward in Jenny McCarthy's book by Dr. kartzinel, and autism expert. He says:
“Autism, as I see it, steals the soul from a child; then, if allowed, relentlessly sucks life’s marrow out of the family members, one by one..”

There are kids that have autism and move through life with "no soul" according to Dr. Kartenzil. The video plays the response to this and the images are priceless. It has 47 comments, most by parents and they need to be read.

Check out the video HERE

Autism Diva is another blog that provides the transcripts of what the parents on the video are saying and allows folks to read and follow while the video plays. She has more commentary on the situation and where it is headed as far as autism support.

Since I have been writing on parent advocacy, I found this would be a nice tie in. It's very inspiring . I hope you enjoy it.

All the best to you!
