    its positive and negative sides, a recent study conducted by Donna Kam Pun Wong, a professor and social worker, proves that integration hurts children, rather than helps them socially (Wong 3). Many parents of autistic children voiced their apprehension concerning inclusion, and the social effects it had on their children.

    ancient legends about "changelings" are actually stories of children with autism. Celtic mythology is redolent with stories of elves and visitors from "the other side" who steal a human child and leave their own damaged child in its place. The child left behind is usually mute, remote and distant, staring into space and unresponsive to its adult caretakers. We must bear in mind that in times gone by, and in some cultures today, children who are unlike the average expected child are seen to be victims

    Teaching Philosophy Statement I have always loved spending time with children. When I graduated from high school I knew that I would like to work with children in some way, but I didn’t think that I would want to become a teacher. The reasons for this were partly because of the pay and partly because I knew that the teaching profession had a lack of opportunity at the time. I decided that I would try social work, but it just didn’t seem like the field for me. After taking off from school

    There’s not much that gets me excited like autistic children. Autism has been a very interesting topic to me ever since I worked with two autistic children at a daycare. One of them, Isaiah, had an obsession with strings and the Jayden walked on his toes at all times. I was interested in how their moods could change so drastically from one moment to the next. Even after that, having someone with autism in one of my high school classes drew me into the subject even further. He [Cooper] had some days

First off, there are three main stages of autism. The first being from 3-4 years old, which is known as "early infantile syndrome." (Rimland pg.69) This will only effect about 10% of all autistics.

    invited me to dinner at her house where I met her husband and her son. During dinner, I was able to have a better insight of their lifestyle and the struggles they encounter when they have an autistic child. One of those problems that most impacted me was the constant debate of whether taking their autistic child to a facility that provides food, room, and schooling. Her husband rejected the idea of taking their child to an unknown place completely and thought the idea was simply a selfish way to

    Forward This essay discusses an important view concerning the differential diagnosis of infantile autism.

    understanding of autism and colors my critique of media representations. For people who do not know autistic individuals personally, however, perceptions of autism have been shaped, by and large, by character depictions in a series of feature films over the last fifteen years, most notably Rain Man (1988), House of Cards (1993), and Molly (1999). I here examine these three films, each with an autistic main character, to evaluate the image of autism presented to the public and to discuss how that
