I am very happy to know that the Kuwait Center of Autism is spreading the word along with LOYAK, Autism is not very common but its out there!

"Autism is a brain development disorder characterized by impaired social interaction and communication, and by restricted and repetitive behavior. These signs all begin before a child is three years old. The autism spectrum disorders (ASD) also include related conditions such as Asperger syndrome that have milder signs and symptoms." [wiki]

I hope they get speakers there to talk to parents on the dangers of combination MMR jabs and the risk of autism in children.

There are actually days when I have got up thinking I wish I were autistic - at least, that way my creative faculties would perk me up.
