Children With Autism Are Enabled!

I am hearing from so many teachers that students with High Functioning Autism and Asperger's are "over managed" by their parents and enabled to a degree. And that students with autism cannot make any decisions for themselves.

How do I teach empathy and understanding for these parents and students to our general population?

Autism is still such a mystery and therapies are still being questioned all of the time. Parents are doing their best with the knowledge and resources available and have been advocating for their children from diagnosis to treatment.
