It's Time to Take Back April! Autism Acceptance Day and Month. 2017: https://www.facebook.com/events/228087247600054/ ACCEPTANCE, not "tolerance," not "I accept you but not your autism." Pro-neurodiversity, pro-supports and services, against "cures," AAD/M was started to counter April "awareness" stunts that demean us. It has expanded to become a way of viewing Autism in a positive and accepting way.
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."
