I had a woman at the park today ask me if DS is autistic. Now that really doesn't phase me and I answered that yes he is.
What got to me was that she proceeded to tell me that the only acceptable treatment is the biomedical approach and that I communicate with him all wrong.
I responded that I am studying OT and know of many approaches, and that I work closely with a speech therapist who knows my son and follow her recommendations.
But why on earth do I have to explain myself to her?
