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.
