Autism Flour Power Challenge[edit]

So on the Autism Awarneess Day Article ( I saw that section about the Autism Flour Power Challenge (check history of the page) was previously unsourced and I was going to added a citation needed template to it but another user had already gone ahead and removed it. I found this YouTube video of a family doing the challenge but nothing else so far from looking at the first few results of a Google search. However I believe its a great idea to bring awareness to a challenge that bring awareness to such a great cause. If someone can find a good source like one of the official websites describing the challenge that would be great but until then the citation needed tag will have to remain in place. I hope everyone had a great autism awareness day yesterday :) --Have a great day :) , Sanjev Rajaram (talk) 19:23, 3 April 2016 (UTC)

Generalized Anxiety Disorder[edit]

Can someone please explain to me how Generalized anxiety disorder fits within the scope of your WikiProject? As someone with generalized anxiety disorder I find this kind of offensive. It's ridiculous, I would like an explanation, please. ThatGirlTayler (talk) 20:11, 31 March 2017 (UTC)

ThatGirlTayler It was removed because this project was marked as inactive, but I'd imagine it might be considered a common co-occurring disorder for people on the spectrum? Conditions comorbid to autism spectrum disorders seems to suggest so. It's not an insinuation that people with anxiety are autistic but that autistic people might be more likely to also have an anxiety disorder. - Purplewowies (talk) 16:30, 24 May 2017 (UTC)
