Autism Acceptance Month – Day 15

Everyone Should Know…

Hmm. I guess here there’s a few points that I want to cover quickly:

  • Autism Speaks is harmful to us, so please don’t light it up blue. Light it up red or gold.
  • ABA is basically what conversion therapy is for gay people (I say this as someone who is gay)
  • Autistic people prefer identity first language
  • You should always listen to autistic people first and everyone else second
  • A lot of autistic stereotypes aren’t true for a lot of autistic people, like not being able to understand sarcasm

There’s probably loads more that I’m forgetting but I have loads to do today so my head is in a planet of its own!!

Let me know what you’d add
