It's Time to Take Back April! Autism Acceptance Day and Month. 2017: Two events- April 1-15 going on NOW at https://www.facebook.com/events/228936064515212/, and second half of the month event here: and https://www.facebook.com/events/588631584829848/ ACTUAL ACCEPTANCE, not "tolerance," not "I accept you but not your autism." The intention is *radical* acceptance, not ABA, not compliance training, not "fitting in," unless we make that decision on our own.
This post by Sharon daVanport, April's Second Annual Autism Acceptance Event Making a Difference!, just in. There are links to the radio show and the Facebook event and community. Links to the two interviewers, Dana Commandatore and Tammy Klein, can be found. Sharon says: "Within the autism community, April has always been known for it's one buzz word, "awareness." Not anymore."
