“I talk in the book about being dumped into the autism trashcan after diagnosis. And basically that just means that once my kids were diagnosed with autism, it was as if nothing else mattered. And it was it was only treated as a behavioural diagnosis. When there are so many other co-occurring conditions that impact my children in different ways. My kids are very different. They have very different profiles.”

“…a lot of the time autistic people are left out of the conversation entirely. There are giant organizations that are dedicated to supporting the autism community as a whole. And a lot of the time, we aren’t even included in conversations about our best interests. And one of the foundations of the disability rights movement is nothing about us without us. But somehow that escapes the discourse and the discussion about autism.”
