Kudos to The Macon Telegraph, and medical writer Marilynn Marchione (AP writer Kristen Gelineau and Mike Stobbe contributed). This is a well-written piece on the "concession case," she did a great job explaining the case and showing both sides of the story. It was nice to read a fair article on this.
This news clip is one of the more positive I've seen run. It shows parts of an autistic first-grader's speech session. Granted, I could nit-pick a few points, but all in all, this falls on the positive side of autism in the media. If I didn't know what autism was, this story would help educate me a bit, give me some understanding, and (most importantly!) not scare me.
The ST explains what they are working on in the session, but what I really liked was when she warns the public not to "be so judgemental" if you see a child tantrumming, etc. I appreciate that!
