Whoever invented the "sticks and stones" parable was a liar. Words hurt, especially parents who talk about autism like a burden. Words can lead to physical hurt. So, choose your words wisely. Autistic lives depend on it.
The Autistic Collaboration Trust is currently engaging with the autistic community and the wider neurodiversity movement to solicit input, to jointly develop a trustworthy and globally accessible employer rating service that is administered by autistic and otherwise neurodivergent volunteers. You are invited to contribute.
