      On the occasion of Autism Speaks' 10th anniversary, a look back at the last ten years of two competing theories of autism; that we cure people with autism, or accommodate them. Carl Nubile talks with Elizabeth Piciutto about her Daily Beast article "They Don't Want an Autism Cure," and with Chong-Ming Lim about his recent paper on why IQ scores may be a bad method to determine how autistic people should be treated. Francisco Urena covers the hashtag war on twitter between #AutismSpeaks10 and #ActuallyAutistic, asks what happened to the MTV.COM article covering it that disappeared without a trace, and interviews autistic activist Alyssa Hillary on the battle on social media over neurodiversity. Barbara Sharp talks with Dan Griggs about the Coaster Run and the Speech and Language Development Center in Buena Park, California. Full Disclosure: Autism Speaks, ABC and MTV.com were all asked for comment and, as of posting time, none has returned our calls offering an interview for inclusion in this piece.
