Autism — The Fashion Statement
Autism is many things to many people . . . For the NYU Child Study Center, it's one of many psychiatric disorders that take our children hostage. For Jenny McCarthy and Holly Robinson Peete and countless others it's a form of mercury poisoning. For disability activists, it's a neuro-biological difference to be protected and celebrated.
