Autistic Persons You Don't See on Sitcoms, Reality Shows or Hollywood Movies .... or in the DSM 5

PaulCimins's picture

The CDFoakely videos present the realities of severe autism that you don't see on television or movies.

Persons who are severely autistic do not attend colleges for gifted youths, intervene as "autistics" before the Supreme Court of Canada to oppose families seeking government funded ABA interventions for their own children, pose for interviews with CBC, CNN or the New Yorker Magazine or hob nob with Washington politicians and bureaucrats.

Their existence, if they survive snow storms in Nova Scotia, being lost in the woods of Northwestern Wisconsin for a week, being physically abused by some staff members in a Long Island residential home, living on a hospital ward in New Brunswick Canada, or jumping from an ambulance in South Carolina , is not always pretty and does not usually attract beautiful Hollywood actresses to portray "autism" for the world.

It is the families of the severely autistic who know their realities and speak for them, not the very igh functioning IT professionals, researchers and politically vocal university students who declare that autism is a different way of thinking and should not be cured. It is the families who, day in and day out, care for, and love, their severely autistic family members who know and understand the realities of severe autism.

Severe autism may ultimately be whitewashed entirely from the public consciousness by Hollywood movies and the DSM 5. If severe autism is not obliterated entirely from public awareness it will be because even the mainstream media, at least at the local level, does report the tragic consequences that sometimes strike the severely autistic. And because courageous family members will tell the world, and keep telling the world, the truth about severe autism.

CDFoakley videos continue that effort to courageously portray some severe autism realities. You can find them on Youtube. And they are featured on the sidebar here at Facing Autism in New Brunswick. From CDFoakley "Persons You Don't See on Sitcoms, Reality Shows or Hollywood Movies":
