An End to the Divide

NTs Are Weird � Blog Archive � An End to the Divide: "Online, there is often a very strong divide between some autistic adults and some parents (I recognize that there are people who are both autistic and parents, and this obviously doesn’t apply to them).

I think I can sum up the divide simply. Autistic adults generally want their rights respected, both in the short-term and in the long-term. Parents want the best possible services and supports for their children.

Neither of these is bad. And these goals aren’t at war with each other."
