I am appaulled at the title of this article and I feel an apology should be made to everyone that has or knows someone with autism. They are not inflicted or a 'victim' of ASD. They have not been attacked or caught something but they are different, have abilities that differ to others. In this world of being politically correct at everything I cannot believe this article has gone to press and has not been complained about.
