From the Lips of Those with Autism, on World Autism Awareness Day

It is an immense privilege in the work that I do that I come into contact with so many beautiful individuals with Autism.  My experience in doing so is that while there is a time and a place for parents, health professionals, educators, and others to advocate for these people, the people we really need to be listening to are those who are walking in their own shoes.

So for Autism Awareness Day I’m just going to share with you some of my favourite quotes ABOUT autism, by those who HAVE autism.
