Are you up to speed with the views of self-advocates in the Autism community? If not, you can get a good start—maybe even the beginning of a crash course—by reading a post by Zoe (over Shannon Des Roches Rosa’s name, which alert readers will recognize) over on Thinking Person’s Guide to Autism. In “The Self-Advocate/Parent Dialogues, Day One: Zoe,” Zoe represent concerns about having others speak for people with Autism. As one can infer from the title, it’s the first installment in a series of posts, so y’all can check back for more later. You might even want to watch it unfold, and check the comments as they accrete. Should be interesting.
