Most autistics downright hate Autism Speaks. Most that I have talked to have not have personal dealings with them like I have. I have been asked multiple times to tell my story, so here it is.
My first autie diagnosis was when my nine year old was three. I brought him to the neurologist I was told about by many people. He was very good with him. He suggested ABA but did not push and he respected my position on it. I appreciated that. At this point I started to suspect I might be autistic too. He was too similar to me and I did not believe it was a coincidence.
He gave me the number to Autism Speaks and told me to give them a call. It made perfect sense. Everyone has heard of them and they are supposed to be an advocacy agency.

While these antivaxxers/bleachcult are screaming big pharma, they’re the ones actually raking in the […]
