I’m a day late for celebrating Autistic Pride Day (but spot on if I lived in the USA).

Autistic pride is about accepting autistic people for who they are and accepting neurological diversity. We are all different and unique and valuable as human beings. Without neurological diversity the world would be a very boring place.

Researchers and autistic activists are moving away from notions that autism needs to be ‘cured’ or ‘fixed’. Autistic people are different but not necessarily disabled.

Autistic people need our acceptance and support to reach their full potential.
