The #Neurodiversity Movement is about supporting neurodivergent people’s rights and value as human beings.
No! #Neurodiversity is the idea that people matter and have rights, regardless of how their brains work.
NO! You can’t tell anything about a person’s abilities or disabilities by whether or not they can put words on a screen.
NO! Advocates who say things that sound like this are talking about problems with functioning labels, not denying intensive disabilities.
NO! This is an intentionally misleading argument by parents who want to appropriate federal HCBS funds that have been earmarked to help disabled people live in the community.
NO! Not everyone can do everything by themselves, & that’s okay! In fact, all people are interdependent on one another to some degree.
NO! This is like saying feminism excludes Anne Coulter. ND advocates fight for the rights of all neurodivergent ppl, just like feminists continue to fight for Coulter's rights.
HELL NO! Understanding that people’s brains work differently is the core of #neurodiversity, but blaming harmful actions on neurodivergence is unacceptable.
