Jerry Seinfeld recently discussed in an interview with Brian Williams that he feels he has some traits of Autism, in his words “I think on a very drawn out scale, I think I’m on the spectrum.”    Since that interview there have been some Autism parents who have taken issue with Mr. Seinfeld’s comments, suggesting that “Celebrity Autism doesn’t help”, that it was a “slap in the face”.   Shannon Penrod, an Autism Mom, wants the world to know that not all Autism parents feel that way.  She thanks Jerry Seinfeld for making Autism synonymous with Genius for one full news cycle after years of less fortunate pairings in the news.  Penrod asks the upset parents, “What happened to, When you’ve met one person with Autism, you’ve met one person with Autism?  We would never allow someone to judge our kids the way some in the Autism community have judged Jerry Seinfeld.  We have all had someone look at our kids and assume they don’t have Autism.  Why would be anything but welcoming to someone who has always been good to us?”
