Red flags for autism courses

You’ve heard about “red flags for autism” but now let’s have a look at red flags for autism courses which talk about red flags of autism!

There is no need to fear autism or indeed Autistic people and the suggestion that we are to be feared is not only unhelpful to everyone but also part of the stigma that surrounds our existence.

It’s not really a polite way to talk about a community of people now is it? “Red flags” means warning people about us- as if there was some to fear and also something that needs to be fixed with early interventions.

There is no therapy or intervention for being Autistic because there is no need for one. We are perfect as we are!

Now that we’ve got all that out of the way let’s tell you what you do need to be warned about though and that is improper information and fear-mongering about Autistic people.

  1. I HATE the word masking. Especially when it comes to girls and women. I have a better word. SUPPRESSING. Now this word shows the force of the action of what they call masking and expresses just how damaging masking is. If you suppress something you will cut off the natural process that is required to develop further for sense of self and self confidence. in ones own abilities. You are now dancing to everybody else’s tune instead of learning your own.
