On March 11, I was messaged about participating and promoting a study to “improve autism.”I got defensive and told her she was ableist. Here is the original message:
Hi, I have a favor to ask. I’m trying to help a friend that is involved with getting participants for a study trying to predict autism, Dr Robert Naviaux, the Dr that is researching Suramin for the treatment of ADS needs 400 children, 200 with and 200 without autism before they can even start. If they don’t have all participants enrolled by June 1, 2020, they will have to start the whole application process over.
This study may help PREVENT children from EVER developing ASD
