[ARCHIVED] "Autism Acceptance Not Awareness..." Article

As Autism Acceptance month wraps up, ODP shared an article by Dr. Nancy Doyle   published in Forbes that summarizes many of the major perspectives and themes expressed from the Autistic community over the past month. In the article, Dr. Doyle includes many links to content developed by Autistic individuals as she breaks down her three takeaways about what is meant by “acceptance”:

  • Autism is not a mystery to be solved
  • Autistic Pride
  • Permission to thrive 

Dr. Doyle writes "Autism cannot be separated from the Autist, it is a major part of a person’s identity, and treating it like a problem to be solved is demeaning. Awareness is not enough, and acceptance is the conversation we need to be having." If you haven’t already,  please take a moment to review this short article and follow the links to explore these important perspectives. 

Please contact The Provider Alliance with any additional comments or questions.
