Autistic self-advocates should be consulted, included, and spoken to when decisions about them are being made in our communities.
1. Stopping the stereotype.
Let’s prove autism is less of a puzzle and more a different way of being human.
2. Giving voice to the silent.
Let’s allow people to speak who are currently being spoken for.
3. Monitoring treatment.
Let’s help licensed professionals monitor the actual effectiveness of treatment they provide.
We present peer-reviewed articles, real-life personal accounts, and related materials in order to support an open communication among professionals, allies, advocates, and others. The hope is that all kinds of people will come to understand that autism is not a terrifying epidemic that ruins lives and families, but is just a different way to be a human.
