Labels are useful.... we use them all the time, to lnow what inside things such as cans
Or what about books with out labels how would we know if it was a cook book, a novel or a biography.
People need lables too we call them names. As parents we think long and hard about the names we give our kids. I looked into the meanings of my childrens names and made sure initials would be ok and then thought of people I knew with the name, and finally thought about using the name at least 50 times a day. ;-) .... I have heard of people looking into the numerology of the name, and of course there is the family politics to contend with.
depending where you get the figures from but Autism Vic states that the incidence of asd is somewhere 1in 200-500.
ADHD figures suggest 3-5 in 100 (Usa)
i could go on and on about the various labels we give kids.
But the ones I am interested in Aspergers and ADHD as they are the labels been directed at my youngest son (E)
At the moment I am questioning are these labels helpful?? or a hindrance??
