    Default Question for parents of children with autism. What would you do if you found this?

    I posted a thread about a disturbing ad I found on Gumtree.
    I would appreciate your input.
    I don't have a child with autism but I have two cousins who do and I find myself getting quite upset about it.

    Thanks. You can find the thread here.

    Default Question for parents of children with autism. What would you do if you found this?

    I'm pretty sure if he is diagnosed with an ASD, there is funding available for equipment like an iPad. Also, iPads don't fix the issues these kids have. it's great to try but it's not the only thing you do.

    And it's not a freaking 'disease'. it's a disorder.

    There are other ways to fundraise publicly & with privacy & dignity at the same time. I don't believe this is a good way :/

    just my 2 cents.

    I have posted on the other thread, but I didn't know enough to comment on it being a 'disease' - it sounded wrong, and I'm happy to know my instincts were right.
