Eustacia Cutler: Child Pornography and Autism

Like Autism Live on Facebook at http://facebook.com/autismlive

In August of 2013, Eustacia Cutler, the mother of Temple Grandin, wrote an article for The Daily Beast entitled, Autism and Child Pornography: A Toxic Combination.  In it she encouraged parents to monitor what their children are exposed to on the internet.  It was a well thought out piece, and hailed by experts as an important article.  In the media's hands it was inappropriately portrayed as an indictment of individuals with ASD as potential sex offenders.  Eustacia sets the record straight and host Shannon Penrod urges viewers to read the original article which is available here: http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2013/08/05/autism-and-child-pornography-a-toxic-combination.html
