Dia Mundial de Conscientização do Autismo.

1. Não tem cura, não tem cara, não é uma doença.
2. É um espectro, com muitas nuances.
3. Respeito passa por inclusão e acessibilidade.
“Passei por diversos profissionais desde a infância — psicólogos e psiquiatras —, todos com diagnósticos diversos: ansiedade generalizada, síndrome do pânico, depressão. (...) Cresci me sentindo diferente. Sabia que alguma coisa estava “errada”.
Precisei tomar diversos remédios que pioravam minhas questões emocionais, crescer deslocada e esperar mais de vinte anos para que o diagnóstico correto chegasse. Era tão óbvio, e ainda assim ninguém foi capaz de juntar os pontos e perceber."…
