We believe that our language around autism shapes and informs how the world interacts with autistic individuals. How we think, write, and converse about autism is fundamentally tied to how autistic individuals are treated in this world.
Love & Autism is a non-profit organization that shifts the hopeless narrative associated with autism and helps bring about global change in how autistic people are treated at work, home, academic setting, and community.
