PARENTHOOD, ASPERGER’s, ASSBURGER’s, RON HOWARD + STEM CELL TREATMENTS

Posted Mar 10 2010 10:09pm

“NBC’s new drama Parenthood by Ron Howard and Brian Grazer. One of the core story lines involves a couple slowly realizing that their son has Asperger Syndrome. I was so convinced by the the 8 year old actors portrayal of a child with Asperger’s that I thought he must have the disorder himself.

It turns out that the shows executive producer Jason Katims is the father of a child with Asperger’s.

In interviews, he has said that he wanted to portray the disorder in as accurate a light as possible. He succeeded in a big way, not only by showing the quirks of a child struggling with an autism spectrum disorder, but by showing how his parents and extended family grapple with understanding and accepting.

ASPERGER, ASSBURGER…TOMATO, TOMAHTO – I was surprised to see how few people knew about asperger’s syndrome.  One of the top google searches today was for “ASSBURGER’S.” Both Asperger’s and Assburger’s continue to show up in the top ten searches in Google Trends this morning.   http://www.ksdk.com/news/watercooler/story.aspx?storyid=197605&catid=71
