This Facebook group welcomes Autistics, and their NT Allies and Parents of Autistics.
We are not a support group, but we have a sister group that is. The focus of this group is to introduce parents to a neurodiversity perspective.
From this perspective, any talk of ‘curing’ or ‘getting rid’ of autism is not only disrespectful, but ludicrous. This group is against ANY form of ABA, no matter how ‘nice’ seeming it may be, and supports the many survivors who have had the therapy inflicted on them. We firmly believe that the support Autistic adults can give parents is of huge benefit to their families.
Unfortunately most people are unaware of this potential help. This group is determined to educate through posts and discussions and encourages members to share these views elsewhere. This is a summary of the most important rules, you will be expected to read the full version in the pinned post if allowed to join.
