Another gem from Visual Vox, aka “Aspie Under Your Radar”! In this post, she brilliantly illustrates the difference between the so-so hum-drum pathology-based language when referring to autism, and a theoretical rewrite that utilizes more progressive, positive (and actually, more accurate) terminology. This sort of shift IS possible and realistic, and it WOULD benefit EVERYONE.
Now if only the medical/scientific community (at large) could put their egos on a shelf and get to objective, non-biased science and just describe What Is. This post is an awesome planted seed! Definitely a recommended read, especially if you’re in the mood for something constructive 🙂 ❤
