Glad this is published. Again, something many autistic advocates have been saying for some time. Perhaps it is overdue that persons shd be actively involved with designing support programmes for persons, as well as training for medical practitioners?

So both kids just got diagnosed with co-morbid . The literature on the two together is so hopelessly scary and horrible. Anyone have both and are doing ok?!? I need one positive data point!

Although focuses on climate induced mental health issues, one can easily deduce that the anxiety and depression people feel is due to a sick society and is entirely normal, and even "healthy".

Seems like Fairy is being used as the nice quiet girl who is put next to the naughty boy to try and mitigate their bad behaviour. Really wish teachers wouldn’t do that, especially not to an girl who has even less capacity to deal with them.

"If a child was not autistic, would we use their hobby as a means to try to get them to do certain things? If not, we need to stop thinking it is okay to use an person’s hobby or interest […to] manipulate/fix/distinguish 'autistic behaviors'."

Schools have ignored the issue & put the blame squarely on our shoulders. That is further abuse to the parents of children & erodes the coping mechanisms of the family unit. My autistic child is wonderful but it is Jackel & Hyde lifestyle of which none of us chose. 2/2

Maybe I’m an A$$h0l3, but when did parents of kids lose confidence in parenting skills? OT & speech therapy is SPECIALISED, but BT? That’s YOUR job as a PARENT to redirect harmful acts & model good behavior. Since when did we hire kids for PARENT TRAINING?!

Autism doesn't vote, but this does. You are talking to parents of autistics. Not us. Maybe clarify future statements.
