Marla Comm: Mainstreaming doesn't always work

This is a letter to the editor published in the MAAP newsletter in 2002, reminding us that all "high functioning" autistic people aren't actually so high functioning, and that many are suffering.

One correction was made to the printed version: the author was diagnosed at age 3, not 4.

Update: Sadly, Marla passed away in 2008. Michelle Dawson wrote a touching obituary.
