Couldn't wait so have just finished it. I'm not sure I really "got it" IYKWIM

I did find some of it very moving, but am left feeling slightly dissatisfied.

I'm not sure the experience was really very different from mine here. What do you see as the advantages of being UK based.

Wow, Arthur, that is a very interesting post re US/UK.

I agree the NHS is brilliant.

Also agree that there is a lot of acceptance over here of autism ,though think into that sometimes creep low expectations of what children with autism can achieve.

Arthur - is it true that is much much easier to get ABA (my favourite) in the US though?

Arthurpewty Would you be surprised to know that there are also lots of people who are trying to cure their children in the UK as well.

Sickofsocalledexperts Whilts it may be true that you can get ABA in some states in schoos. The quality of teaching has gone down as the popularity has spread. I have heard of many parents who complain of therapists(TA's) who are not really up to scratch.
