Top Ten Reasons Adults without Autism Deserve AMA (Applied Misbehavior Analysis)

1. ABA is a marketing campaign built around controlling behaviors. It stifles freedom of thoughts and removes autonomy, innovation, self-determination, and creativity.
2. AMA seeks to validate each person's individual strengths, accommodate their disabilities, and provide for them a set of circumstances wherein they can thrive to meet their full potential.
3. ABA reinforces behaviors undertaken in the interest of "social consequence." Those social norms go unquestioned and maintain the status quo. The status quo maintains dominant power structures and keeps minority populations marginalized.

Hullo, what have we here @MoHFW_INDIA ?!

Your recently released Clinical Establishments guidelines 2019 indicate that 'mentally disabled' will need a guardian for informed consent!

First off why are you equating disabled people with minors?

#Capacity Appendix 9 EXTRACT <br />
INFORMED CONSENT or CONSENT GUIDELINES<br />
The informed consent shall at the least contain the following information in an understandable language and format (desirably which a lay person can easily understand) <br />

@MoHFW_INDIA @EqualsCPSJ @RajivSpeaks @Deepak_TMN @drsitu @netshrink @vjayakumar @amritbakhshy @val_resh @SmithaSadasiva5 Next - bad enough we've had to suffer conflation of 'unsound mind' with mental illness, now we have a sweeping 'mental disability' which means ... what exactly?
@MoHFW_INDIA @EqualsCPSJ @RajivSpeaks @Deepak_TMN @drsitu @netshrink @vjayakumar @amritbakhshy @val_resh @SmithaSadasiva5 If you cannot assume capacity for all, suspect capacity for all. Stop singling out disabled people for guardian consent.
Embrace diversity in communication and supported decision making.
No mention of advance directives?

Whether we’re talking about some sort of alternative arrangements for @BorderIrish or just coping with increased no of #customs declarations after #Brexit (especially under #nodeal ) it all comes down to customs systems /1

Some like the #AAC claim that it would be sufficient to use existing systems and processes to solve the NI border. All you would need is to adapt them slightly. Which doesn't seem to be a big deal (I'm not going to go into detail here on the AAC plan-just focusing on systems) /2
I've mentioned this several times before - an update from UK's current customs IT system CHIEF to the new version CDS started years back, before the referendum. The article provides an update on the progress. TL:DR it's not ready for Brexit /3

How to mitigate #NoDeal for the Irish border?

I've now read the report top EU customs experts Pickett & Lux wrote for NI Dept for the Economy on this. Not easy reading ⚠️

Here’s a few highlights.
(For further analysis see the incomparable @PMDFoster)

First, context:
90% of NI businesses who export to EU trade across @BorderIrish.
94% of NI bus. exporting south are micro- or small enterprises
(Significant, for reasons we’ll return to)
A third of value NI exports to ROI is ‘food & live animals’
(We'll also return to this).
2/9
Second, a reminder of what trading across EU customs border means:
💳providing guarantees for customs debts,
💷payment of customs duties & import VAT
🎫applying for authorisations
🛃complying with customs formalities
📒est. operating procedures for dealing with customs
