It's Time to Take Back April! Autism Acceptance Day and Month. https://www.facebook.com/events/314081628698619/ ACCEPTANCE, not "tolerance," not "I accept you but not your autism." We require complete acceptance. Pro-neurodiversity, pro-supports and services, against "cures," Autism Acceptance Day was started to counter April "awareness" stunts that demean Autistics. It has since expanded to become a way of viewing Autism in a positive and accepting light.
It's almost time for the second annual Autism Acceptance Day. I have not written a nice, long, blog post about Autism Acceptance Day, mostly because I am tired. Landon Bryce says I write with "deadly brevity and accuracy:" http://thautcast.com/drupal5/content/50-inspiring-autistic-people-2011-parents. I love that, but it's because I HAVE to write with deadly brevity, since I don't always have time for longer musings, and, if I am going to be brief, it had better be deadly accurate!
Obviously, I am using my skills at brevity to compile a cool list of great writings that fall under the category of Autism Acceptance. I will be adding more ASAP. Feel free to send me links you’d like to see here. If you see your blog or site linked here and do NOT want it listed, please contact me at pdurbinwestby @ gmail . com I will be adding to this very short list of excellent writings; there are many many more!
