Autism Advocacy

What's in this issue?

Advocacy—a term used to describe a movement aimed at raising awareness for a particular cause. There’s no denying the need for autism advocacy is crucial, which is why this month we’re covering topics ranging from Autism Stigma to Person-first or Identity-first Language. Adding to the mix, we have a piece from the renowned Dr. Temple Grandin PhD and her colleague Dr. Debra Moore PhD looking into how nurturing your child’s interests can help uncover their strengths. Our aim in this issue is to challenge the narrative against autism, while recognizing the beauty in difference and increasing awareness of neurodivergence across multiple cultures.
