Yeah, I thought I’d had enough of this meme, too. And then I saw this brilliant Stim Nation video, S#!T Ignorant People Say to Autistics. As the mom of two kids on the spectrum (plus two more who are just “quirky”), I can attest to the fact that this whole video is oh, so true.
I cannot wait for more from this group. Also, I couldn’t possibly love this video (or the girl in it) any more.
Warning: The word “s**t” is actually spelled out in the video, and she does use the “R-word,” so it’s not a video to automatically share with your kids. For me, the full-on awesomeness far outweighs any of that, though.
