"Positively Autistic" YOU MUST SEE THIS VIDEO
"Positively Autistic" (click on the link) is a short video that must be viewed by anyone and everyone, not just those associated with autism. It is so unique and different from all those videos that show individuals with autism as being prisoners of an incurable disease. It dispells the myths that autism is something that must be cured and that autistics are people who must be made more "normal" and indistinguishible from neurotypicals so that they will blend in with them in society.
Please watch this video and take the time out of your day to do something that may change your perspective on how you view and understand autistics to be. The video is written in part by autistic individuals who speak out against being treated like they are diseased and abnormal, they only wish to be respected just as they are and understood to be functioning individuals with something to contribute to society/their community.
This video may change your life and leave you with a good feeling about how autistic individuals feel about themselves. If you do watch it, please leave a comment on how you feel and think about it.
