TRIGGER WARNING: the video contains talk of autism cures, abuse and threats of violence.
The fight against the use of so called autism “cures” is ongoing. Some parents are doing whatever they can to “purge” their children of a neurological difference. For four years Emma Dalmayne, of Autistic Inclusive Meets Community Group AIM, has trying to raise awareness of the terrible harm these quack cures can cause. For a very long time, our National Autistic Society in the UK has been seemingly reticent about getting involved directly.
On the 15/2/18, Emma Dalmayne met with Jane Harris and Sarah Lambert of the NAS—she was joined by fellow autistic advocate Kieran Rose and Richard Mills, of AT-Autism. They went with one burning question: would the NAS agree to back legislation against autism cures?

Sara would have loved to attend this meeting, but couldn’t due to poor health. We wanted to at least help spread the word about this significant moment in autism history. Listen to the full meeting below.
