The National Autistic Society (UK) is asking people to Think Differently about Autism. Your insights are requested. I have added my own statement to this board and hope that other autistic people will do the same. The reply message stated that it may take as long as a week for the post to appear. Right now, they have four (4) perspectives up, all contributed by parents of autistic people. Be warned: though the campaign seems very autism friendly, at least in comparison to those of other autism "charities," you may encounter the words "devastating," "nightmare," and "poo" if you go there.
Please visit this link and let the NAS know what autism means to you.
