Some call it neurological diversity, others see it as autism's fight back. People diagnosed as "on the spectrum" are suddenly in demand by employers seeking a competitive advantage from autistic workers more used to being considered disabled than special.

Many call it vaccine damage. What a sick story trying to make it sound all good when crimes against humanity for profits is slaughtering children.

With Winnipeg dummy's level of memory loss, there's no hope. He can't even remember all those links I supplied to genuine peer reviewed studies, or his replies that they were all "junk science", without giving any scientific reason for saying so, apart from the fact that he didn't like what they said.

Leave it to an anti vaxxer to call all autism 'vaccine damage' and never to acknowledge individuals progress. The only crimes against humanity is those who would lead others to believe autism is 'slaughtering', and has no hope or no future. Sorry, articles like this proves everyone with autism has potential in the work place. Those with autism are far more capable than what an anti vaxxer would lead you to believe and would probably do far better in corporate level work than an anti vaxxer would.

EVERYONE? Hardly. Potential but not as one generally defines it. How bout these kids never being vaccine damage in the first place.

Everyone with autism, no matter the cause, DOES have the potential. It's people like you who who consider this a 'sick story' instead of a step forward, and would keep disabled people from the work place if you could.

What part of corporate level work and Freddie Mac have to do with being President?? Leave it to an anti vaxxer to go off the wall. Sorry if your son doesn't have potential and I'd hate to have you for a father, sadly you'd clearly limit his abilities.

You're the one climing vaccine damaged kids have so much potential, why not Pres of the USA then? I mean if you can constantly talk nonsense why can't I once in a while?

"Sheldon" on The Big Bang Theory his character fits the perfect profile of someone who is autistic, my daughter says they use that TV character as an example in their psych class at college.

I never claimed anything about 'vaccine damaged' kids. The article and I as well were talking about autism. You see no potential in anyone; of the article and those who do see potential, you name-call and attack.
Fact still remains. Freddie Mac is hiring those who have autism. You think it's a 'sick story'. You're the only one who limits ability.
