I am mad. I am mad at the so called “professionals” who are promoting ABA and continuing to use ABA as a means to keep the autistic person oppressed. #askingautistics #AllAutistics #ActuallyAutistic #NeuroLurker
It is YOUR FAULT so called “professionals” that the autism community and the autistic community are at odds. I am so mad and disgusted with you so called “professionals” and I am here to give you a piece of my mind.
You so called “professionals” are proliferating Conversion Therapy for Autistics. Convert the autistic person to so called “standards”, “normalcy”, “typical” is the main underlying theory of any form of ABA. Period. No arguments needed. That is fact.

Teaching when autistic - a thread that may be useful. If you're into #education or #autism please share so I can continue to get people understanding it. Buckle up, it's thread time again folks. /1
Teaching in some ways doesn't fit well with stereotypical ideas of #autism. It's essentially a social activity, it involves dealing with people a lot, there are huge sensory issues and so forth. But I think it actually fits rather well. /2
There are, for a start, quite a lot of #autistic teachers. Enough, perhaps, for its own hashtag. This would suggest *something* about the profession works for the #neurodivergent. /3

I don't usually pin tweets. Certainly not personal ones.
But this one is pinned and it's personal because #Neurodiversity is a real thing in my life and probably yours, too, whether you know it or not.
I'm talking generally now about #ActuallyAutistic #ADD #ADHD + so many others.
This is a thread, a single story only, about one person's relationship with #Neurodiversity

I did a thing I don't usually do. I talked about my personal relationship with it at a thing. I didn't plan it. As many life-changing things tend to do --> it just happened.

Before we go too far tho it's very important we establish that this is only a single story. There are many voices that need to be heard.
