A boy is in critical condition at a hospital, with a coma, after abuse by his parents. The 4 year old with autism was beaten, burned, and bitten apparently by his mother. The mother is facing charges of attempted homicide, corporeal injury to a child, and battery and child endangerment, while the father is facing child endangerment charges, according to the article.

Sometimes I think a "slashdot" for autistics would be a mighty fine site. It could cover abuses, medical scams, research and studies (the good/bad/ugly), advocacy spotlights, real autistics spotlights, and maybe links to other resources etc etc. I wish we could get more exposure for this. I wonder if I could repost this site on the main board and see if people could subscribe.
