    It's an unfortunate truth of ABA. Bound by rules that dont necessarily work for everybody.

        Being high functioning autistic, this makes me like him even more. Been watching him on YouTube recently such as with Matt from demolition ranch and also from the "history" strongest men in the world. I want to take psychology to be able to help others who are less functioning. Such as my sister, she is also autistic and has other medical issues. I just want to say thank you, even though you won't see this.

              Beautiful. You just need to know how to work with them. Exactly. It is one of the hardest fields anyone can work in, and Robert shows the understanding that a good deal of youth workers don't have. I love how he talked about the forgotten children that are misunderstood and with understanding are able to connect. They connect when people who work in care try to understand. This made my day.

                          Good man, so glad he mentioned the special needs community. It's the most ignored and mistreated community in the nation. Mainly because not to many people know about what a day in the life of a special needs family is like.

                                    I game with a doctor and pharmacist, and they both agree that if you are careful with how you administer them (clean needles, good technique), and limit your cycles to a responsible amount, that the dangers of steroids are vastly overblown. Can't speak from person experience though.

                                        I’m currently a case manager (QIDP) for individuals with intellectual disabilities and/or autism. Oberst seems like a great, genuine, group home worker who could establish rapport with the individuals. I would love to have him at one of our groups homes. He’s absolutely right about knowing how to work with each individual. Too many times workers give up on them when they get frustrated with maladaptive behaviors. But they just need the right combination of therapeutic help. They’re the most beautiful humans who exist and have given me more meaningful experiences than I could have ever imagined possible.

                                          People with disabilities are not the "the most beautiful humans who exist", get outta here with that nonsense. They absolutely deserve to be treated like everyone else, and that includes not putting them up on a pedestal for something they didn't choose.

                                        I always say that people react differently to CBD and THC. Some people need THC, others CBD. But the msm as big pharma and its paid puppets love to claim that THC is the bad thing in cannabis and why it should stay illegal.

                                        Shut the f up with that nonsense!

                                        Those parents are horrible for caring about the dumb opinion of others than the care of their child. That she doesn't feel like that all the time!
