At any rate, it got me thinking, as things often do... how fucking unfair is THAT? We're lucky enough to be able to afford to live in this area (kinda) which means we have access to some good services, some of the best around, I would say. But what about the folks living in the woods of Kentucky, where there's one school for all the kids in a 50 mile radius? They get shit for services, there's nothing even for them to fight for, really, and it's just because of where they live? That's not fair. Their kid still has autism, s/he still needs excellent services, it isn't fair that they don't have access to the same services that we do. And if they don't have access, their parents are forced to learn it and do it themselves, but what if they're like me and should win awards for being shitty? That just sucks for everybody involved!
I'm not entirely sure what I think should be done about this, I just wanted to point out the general suckiness of the whole thing. I'm glad for the internet, at least, because now I have friends who live in the woods of Kentucky and have kids with autism. Hi!
