ableist history of the puzzle piece symbol for autism

As we approach Autism Acceptance Month it is important to read up on the history of some of the symbols certain organisations choose to use and why the majority of us on the spectrum do not support them. This Autism Acceptance Month be sure to let people know how we would like to be represented in the media and in public. On Autism Acceptance Day #HoodieUp instead or lighting it up blue. Encourage Autism Acceptance and inclusion and not ableism and segregation.
