Be nice if journalists could include autistic folks or history or our culture in their work. Skipping the reason the bill was renamed is autistic history erasure.

The next re-authorization of the law was due to autistic people protesting the first name. Autistic people also fought the implementation of ABA. Something we’re working together internationally to fight and get banned. Our autistic kids deserve a life w/o therapy-induced PTSD.


Use Respectful Language in CAA Re-authorization: Language associated with “combating autism” is inconsistent with thepreferences of most autistic people and their families. In any re-authorization, Congress should modify the title of CAA to bringit in line with respectful language use in the autism and developmental disability community.
