Media Release| STOP Autistic Child Abuse! Autistic Moms Put Out a Call To Help Autistics Now | #AutisticMomsRise


Autistic moms band together to save autistic lives and stop the abuse of autistic children.

Autistic Ambassadors & Moms to Autistics, Emma Dalmayne (UK) and Eve Reiland (US), are leading the campaign with  #AutisticMomsRise on, social media and in-person in their communities.

#AutisticMomsRise is a charge to stop autistic child abuse, halt the “Hollywood Autism” misinformation spread that promotes horrific stigma and prejudice to autistic children — and bring awareness to the actual autistic community crisis.

We need help now and lifetime supports for all autistics, and keep autistic children safe from fake cures and homegrown experiments, abuse as therapy, and a lifetime traumatized by bullies — and other great harm.

Autistics grow up in a society that dehumanizes and demoralizes them in media with everyone from politicians to the neighbor using autistic as a slur.

Autistics’ #1 cause of early death is suicide – worldwide and in every culture, class and age. We have a shorter median lifespan than non-autistic people. This is not due to being Autistic, but rather living Autistic in a world that doesn’t accept us — our bodies can’t handle the stress.

The goals of #AutisticMomsRise campaign:

  • Stop Autistic Child Abuse

  • Stop Autistic Cures Quackery

  • Halt misinformation spread

  • Work on actual Autistic Community crisis needs & lifetime challenges

  • Support Autistic Child Growth & Development

  • Support Autistic Brains in Education and Careers

  • Build Actual Autistic Acceptance that includes Autistic Human Rights

  • Create Bridges Between Autistic Parents & Non-Autistic Parents and work together to create a better future for all Autistics.

  • Create an actual Autistic support network with true allies.

  • Create stronger civil rights protections with protected Autistic minority class, above and beyond current ADA disability protections.

This April for Autism Awareness Month talk to Autistic moms, autistic parents and autistic people. We have lived experience of growing up Autistic, living Autistic and parenting Autistic children. The Autistic community challenges that need addressed immediately: Stop Autistic Child Abuse and Help Autistics now.
