Autism is a hidden disability that happens during brain development, affecting motor nerves and senses. Some have sensory overloads too. Autistic people are also 3.5 times more likely to have GI diorders, a lot have bipolar disorder and 1/3 of the Autism population has epilepsy so yes we should support Autism speaks because it is a foundation devoted to raising awaness and money to Autism research go on to their website for peeps sake, AUTISM SPEAKS SHOULD BE SUPPORTED IF YOU DISAGREE THeN YOU ARE MAN AND CRUEL PEOPLE WITH AUTISm DIDN'T ASK FOR IT SO HELP FIND A CURE BY DONATING OR JUST HELP sPrEAD AWARNESS OR EVN JUST GO ON THE WEBSIYE
First off I am f**king autistic and secondly we do need those movement because they help people be aware of the others who are autistic and for those who are not don't need to have a f**king say. Not unless they support it I hate when people say we don't need for them to have help
Autism Speaks has the right idea about informing people about the disorder but they are horrible about executing the idea. They give autism a horrible image and they barely do any research or help to fight it. They do have videos BUT again, they give autism a bad image. I know a few autistic people and they hate the group.
Do not support this charatiy. They are are doing so many bad things. For example they only spend 4% of their budget to help autistics. They barley have any autistics on their board of directors. They create tons of fear spreading propaganda and in one of the videos a autism mom says she wanted to kill herself and her autistic daughter but did not do it due to her lover for her non autistic child. Their rhetoric is disgusting treating autism as a fate worse then death and most of all there are many autistics out there who do not want a cure, yes they do have their fair share of challanges to deal with just like everybody. But they think autism is essential to who they are. So support groups like the autistic self advocacy network or the autism womens network after all "nothing about us without us".
