My write up on the puzzle piece. I barely touch upon the T4 project during the Shoah (Holocaust). I will do a more in depth one another time.
Katherine Ruth Last Excellent, accurate and succinct. Just one note – rainbow infinity is more and more being used for broader neurodiversity, so including things like ADHD, dyslexia, etc, whereas gold is more and more being used specifically for autism.
Katherine Ruth Last It’s only a very, VERY recent development, to be fair, something I’ve noticed in about the last 6 months.
Katherine Ruth Last So I won’t hold it against you!
Meghan Ashburn I use the rainbow infinity because our family is neurodiverse. So that includes us all.

Fierce Autie thank you!
Robin Ganstrom Great article, I’d love to share it on my page, but a couple minor corrections for this part
“Judge Rothman Center even goes as far as electric shocks when they see a behavior they do not like. These abusive treatments lead to PTSD. PTSD usually leads to suicide.”
It’s the Judge Rottenberg Center. And it would be much more accurate (and hopeful) to say PTSD sometimes leads to suicide.
Suicide is not the inevitable end of PTSD. I have PTSD.
Robin Ganstrom And I think you mean we don’t want to “reclaim” the puzzle piece… not recreate. Recreating it makes no sense in the context.
Robin Ganstrom Couple typos in the last paragraph. I hope you don’t mind me pointing these out, I really like the overall article, I’m just trying to help you polish it a bit and make it better.
“It is essential for human deversity. There is no normal or healthy. There is co correct way of living.”
I think you mean “diversity” and “no correct way of living”. ❤️👍
Robin Ganstrom Still need to correct “Judge Rothman Center”. It’s Judge Rotenberg Center.
Fierce Autie Done
Cindy Lewis I just linked it in a reply to a woman trying to explain why the local autism charity isn’t as great as she thinks.
Whether she’ll be open to learning remains to be seen, but I led the proverbial horse to water.
Robert Gehrman Âû Well done ! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
