We've asked a lot this week. If you can't do it all, but you you can do one thing to be an #AuthenticAlly to the #AutisticCommunity, then do this. Be compassionate. Aim for understanding.
Learn about #Autism & #AutismMyths from #ActuallyAutistic people.
We've been talking about being an #AuthenticAlly this week, & what that means. We all need to be allies, #ActuallyAutistic or not, when it comes to #mentalhealth. It's not a private matter, and we need to work together.
Check out Zoes post to see why
An Authentic Ally needs to know #Neurodivergence isn't visible on the outside. Yes, we can fake it and mask, but its not easy, and it has a price you will never understand. Don't invalidate my neurotype or experiences just because you don't understand them.
Every #ActuallyAutistic person has #value, #values, #skills, & #soul. We make Excellent Allies. Check out Jo's post on the value we can bring in just one area of life, #recruitment. Hire #Autistic, & see how much #MutualBenefit it brings both you and us.
