April is for affirmation, inclusion, empowerment, and accomodation!
Heart Autistic voices. Unlearn ableist ideas.
Actively dismantle ableist and neurobigoted constructions and methods.
Examine your personal neuro-privilege. Stock your self for ableist attitudes.
When Autistic voices say: that is dangerous to us, pay attention, study, change.
When Autistic voices say: that is what we have to thrive, pay attention and accomodate.
I would like us to maneuver past “autism consciousness” and “autism acceptance”. I would like us ~ in tandem with allied allistics ~ to domesticate Autistic affirmation, inclusion, empowerment, and accomodation.
Could this be the yr we transfer in that course and start to radically shift the paradigm.

To study extra about how Autistic-kind expertise prejudice in our society and what the allistic or in any other case neurotypical accountability is for that, examine The Uncanny Valley (there’s a hyperlink inside this text, too, for additional studying) and The Double Empathy Downside.
