Mother of Down Syndrome Man Who Died In Police Custody Wants Special Training for Law Enforcement « CBS DC

First let’s get 1 thing straight, Ethan Saylor was a man, he happened to have Down syndrome. 2nd and not least important, he died at the hands of ignorant lazy ‘mall cops’ that had nothing better to do but get paid for doing nothing, wait, they got paid to kill plain and simple.

Having Down syndrome in itself is difficult to say the least for those endowed, but being choked to death to watch a movie . . . come on man, those that have done far worse have suffered less and LIVE.

Finally to @CBS thank you once again for placing a label before a human being; he was a man and he had Down syndrome, he wasn’t a ‘Down syndrome man’. Better journalism can be found at @NBC or @ABC or even @Foxnews. Charlie Rose must be very proud, not to mention Walter Cronkite. One thing is for sure, our society has come a long way and yet has so much more to learn. . .

Parenting the Autism Away…

This is a great point of view from a great parent so I thought I’d share with you, happy reading. Spread the word !! Share and repost !!

Autism & Oughtisms

I’m going to start with a deceptively simple statement: Good parenting can lessen the severity of autism. If I just stop now, I’ll have left you with the groundwork for a huge number of the misconceptions I see almost everyday when I deal with other people’s attitudes towards what causes and cures autism, so I better explain myself.

I said good parenting “can,” not will, lessen the severity of autism. Any intervention to help a child cope with the challenges autism brings to their life, must always necessarily involve advising and training the parent: If the parent is not understanding and committed to the intervention, it will not be applied consistently or appropriately in that child’s life. Furthermore, teaching a parent to better understand autism and how autism impacts on their child, will help them be the parent that specific child needs, and often make them a more patient…
