Unfortunately Tui Na massage therapists have cancelled their presentation at our #Autism Roadshow event in #Maidstone #Kent tomorrow due to unforeseen circumstances. We are arranging a replacement speaker.https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/thinking-autism-roadshow-maidstone-event-for-autism-parents-tickets-50527949457 … #TARoadshows

I don‘t appreciate how you purposefully erase the autistic activists who exposed this harmful ‚treatment‘ and spoke out for autonomy and consent of autistic people. I also don‘t appreciate that you have not cancelled the ‚nutritionist‘ who claims autism can be healed…

That was the correct decision. Now you need to remove the nutritionist who thinks you should “eliminate heavy metals” and improve “detoxification pathways”. It’s good you are trying to support parents of children with autism but they need evidence based treatments not quackery

That would require them to consider disability communities to be valid sources of information on what the people in question actually need. Sadly, if they can’t understand the word “no” I’m p sure taking the lead of #ActuallyAutistic ppl might be too complex for them.

@TweetingAutism We’ll still be there tomorrow anyway, so let your Tu Num lot know we will see them in Sunderland if they speak. Meanwhile, back to the other Woo you peddle…Pls explain how selling me food supplements cures my autism… @AutisticUK@AIMautistic#ActuallyAutistic

Are those circumstances that video of a session got out & was viewed by likely targets of the “treatment” in question? And even the supposedly flattering supercut of a child learning they can’t say “no” to adults still upset ppl?Because timing sorta suggests this played a role.
