Anonymous said: Not a week goes by that I don't read a story similar to what happened to Stephon. One would think that after a while a person would become numb or perhaps calloused, but that hasn't seemed to happen. It is very distressing to see that despite more than a decade of autism awareness being pumped through the various media there are still so many people in positions of authority who have no clue. I am the father of an autistic son (non-verbal). I would like to know when his birthday was.

Thank you very much for your post. Stephon’s birthday was December 10th.
