The kid’s autistic: the Generation Rescue website says so by Kev Leitch Healthy Living ProfessionalHealth Maven Posted Fri 31 Jul 2009 9:59am If I were good at being respectfully insolent, I might try to make a joke out of how Generation Rescue has changed into Generate Revenue over the past year or so.  Generation Rescue’s website now offers multiple ways for people to spend money. From “let’s go shopping” to the multiple “shopping affiliates”, a portion of everything you spend from ... Read on »

And today I found this: In case you didn’t click to enlarge and read, here’s their statement: The New York Times recently posted an article on autism recovery – and yes, it’s real!
