Study finds new risk factor for autism

Two weeks ago, we wrote a post about a television show on MTV that documented a young man with autism, among other people. The show sought to help viewers realize that a disability like autism does not define a person's character while also giving them a better understanding of the condition. Now, thanks to new research, New York residents may be able to gain an even greater understanding of autism.

MTV show addresses transition to adulthood for disabled

New York residents who have disabilities or who have children with disabilities know the challenges that come with the territory.

Senator pushes for investigation into homes for disabled

Some of our readers may have heard about some frightening reports about maltreatment and abuse at groups homes across the country. Reports in several states, including New York, exposed how people with developmental disabilities have been mistreated and abused in both public and private facilities. In too many cases, death was the result. Now, one U.S. senator is standing up for these individuals and asking the federal government to do the same.
