Sharing from “Non-Speaking Not Silent: The actual #Autism crisis”

TW all the trigger warnings an.iesm, death abuse, and pretty much everything

           There is a very real and serious Autism crisis

Yes we do have and Autism crisis and it seems t be an invasive epidemic world wide! But it’s not what you think!
The crisis isn’t about “the rise in autism rates,” something that is largely do to more awareness and understanding about Autism
No the crisis  is invasive, frightening and dangerous
The Autism crisis is….
Am invasive lack of presumption of competence especially when we do not have or use verbal communication or when our verbal communication is deemed poor
It’s the assumption that those who do use verbal speech need few or even no supports at all,  and the reality their needs are often over looked, ignored and rarely accommodated
