But What Do Autistic People Think? New Video from Rethinking Autism

Rethinking Autism has released their latest PSA video, “Autism Support Group”. The video is very well done and I believe really speaks to one particular feeling — that sometimes, autistic adults feel as if they are not being heard. Tammy Klein has some really insightful things to say. Please check this out — and BRAVO to Rethinking Autism for their efforts to change the public conversation about autism. And PLEASE consider passing this along to friends, family, acquaintances, etc.

Autistic Adults Speak on Rethinking Autism

Please check out the new “Our Voice” page on Rethinking Autism’s website. Autistic adults have lent their voices — advice and insight — on what they would like parents of autistic children to know. I have a quote there as well, as well as Sharon daVanport and Tricia Kennedy of Autism Women’s Network and Kat Bjornstad. There appears to be a video in the works — stay tuned! (And have I mentioned that I think Rethinking Autism rocks?)
