Autism Speaks Timeline | #NotAnAutisticAlly


note: The “Autism Community” is not the Autistic Community

The Autism Community was created by non-Autistic led organizations and includes mostly parents, professionals and their friends and networks.

Most of what the world know about Autism is sourced from the non-autistic “Autism Community.”


What’s the difference between Autism Advocacy and Autistic Advocacy?

Autism Advocacy (by mostly Non-Autistics) = Cure/Eugenics, ABA/Conversion Therapy, Parent-led organizations, Light It Up Blue, pseudoscience, puzzle pieces & non-Autistic advocates speaking over Autistics.

Autistic Advocacy (by Autistics & Real Allies) = Civil & Human Rights, Stigma reduction, Autistic-led organizations, Light It Up Gold, Red Instead, infinity symbol, Autistic Advocates and our Real Allies.

That’s what I’ve got so far … – Eve
