If your idea of what a disabled / neurodivergent person needs is to be more "normal", to "fit in" with society, to no longer be disabled / ND, to be as much like abled people as possible, and to be surrounded only be abled're gonna fail a lot of us.
Some of us need some of those things, some of the time. But we also need #DisabledPride, #neurodiversity, authenticity and acceptance as we are, consistent access to our disabled community, appreciation of disabled ways of being / doing, and full accessibility.
Abled people are so often so insistent that what we need is to...not be ourselves. We're trained to suppress our autistic traits, to hide our chronic pain and walk without mobility aids, etc. Therapies and cures and so on designed to make us into abled, "normal" people.
