There are quite some people who have Aspergers AND are trans…
Is there maybe any connection?And, if so, would it maybe make sense to start a…kind of Aspergers-Trans-Forum or something?
Or isn’t there a need to categorize any further?I…. feel like it would at least help me to have some contact to that kind of people
There definitely seems to be a correlation between people who are neuro-atypical and people who are trans…
but i’d suggest to include people on all the Autism Spectrum, not only people with Asperger diagnosis.
Dear Corporate Partners and Supporters of Autism Speaks: We are a concerned group of people comprised of Autistic people, the families, friends and…
This is a petition to corporate partners & supporters of autism speaks, highly recommending they terminate their sponsorship.
Suzanne Wright’s hate filled screed opened up a door. We need to rush in. Sign & share please please please.
Autism Speaks has handed us a golden opportunity to ask their financial supporters to consider that their well-intentioned contributions in support of autistic people would be better spent practically anywhere else.
Like with an organization that isn’t the autistic community’s version of Exodus International.
Sign and share.
IMPORTANT, SIGNAL BOOST, WE CAN GET THEM THIS TIME, MAYBE THIS TIME A$ CAN LOOSE IT’S POWER.
do i have to label my son high functioning autism
Please don’t label him high functioning.
Please do tell him that he’s autistic.
This is very important. Autism is not just a label. Being autistic and not knowing it can be very confusing for a child and wreak havoc with their self-esteem.
The vast majority of autistic kids are not stupid. We figure out very young that we are different. I did it just after my third birthday, over three years before my diagnosis. If he knows why, he will know there are other people like him out there. Calling him high functioning is putting him above other disabled people, which is to say socializing him in a way that will make him a worse person and make it hard for him to interact with the community he can have if he wants it as an adult. Functioning labels are neither your friend nor his. People branded ‘high functioning’ tend to have their needs ignored. People marked ‘low functioning’ tend to have their strengths ignored. That whole concept is stupid to begin with because autistics are like other people in that we each have a unique variety of strengths and weaknesses that are hard to fit into boxes.
