A friend on facebook linked me to this article, “Study: Nearly 1 In 3 With Autism Socially Isolated“.
Interesting. This bit really caught my eye –
” a study looking at the experiences of young people who received special education services,”
So in other words, kids who were either partitioned off into a “special needs class” or who got “special” treatment in school…. those kids have trouble socially later. Sounds to me like maybe school, specifically public school, isn’t the best place for autistic kids to learn social skills, aka socialization. Hmmm…
