Investigating Refrigerator Mother
"May appear autistic."
After blinking incredulously at that a couple of times and confirming that it did indeed say what it looked like it said, I went up and explained to this person that "autistic" didn't belong in a list of child abuse symptoms because autism is not in any way caused by abuse.
She replied that it had to do with the appearance of abused children, who sometimes do not talk and can be mistaken for autistic children.
So I told her if that was the intended point, then the list ought to say, "May not talk," or something similar, and that it was not at all appropriate to use a neurological condition as a shorthand description of something else.
After a moment of reflection, she said that she understood what I was saying and that she would change the document on her computer when she got back to her office.
There's an awful lot of ignorance out there, but hopefully my little corner of the world is now a bit safer for families with autistic children.
