We have questioned the premises and assumptions of past research, activism, and therapies on autism. The response to this movement has largely reflected that the closest self-appointed “allies” to autistic people are unprepared to hear our us or follow our lead.
The most prominent organizations that have purported to advocate on behalf of autism have done so for the benefit of parents, families, and caregivers of autistic children rather than autistic people themselves. In leaving autistic voices out of the conversation, such “advocates” stifle meaningful dialogue and progress.
