Because much of the current clinical and scholarly information around autism is deficit-based, limited, and some, even completely inaccurate, much of the clinical support is also misguided and unintentionally harmful. However, when we know better, we do better! Explore how to be an ally and foster genuine autistic happiness, health and, flourishing across the lifespan for our autistic selves, family, friends, and fellow humans.
