Damn do I have some things to say about what passes for #SpecialEd in the communities called out with #ExposeChristianHomeschooling. See, I just figured out I'm #ActuallyAutistic. My twin siblings were diagnosed at age 2.

...no one told them until they were 20 years old.
It was the late 90's. Neighbors were distrustful of us homeschoolers, and church ppl could sense something was off. So the last thing my parents were going to broadcast was that the twins were deeply disabled, and they were refusing to accept help offered by the public schools.
My #autistic siblings got a couple forms of therapy until age 4, and then we "did therapy at home". What we really did was escape the scrutiny of medical mandatory reporters who were already telling us the twins needed in-home therapy options from, again, the public schools.
