#SHIFTTHENARRATIVE

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. We all are responsible for being humans that treat each other with respect, equality, kindness, and the assumption that each of us is ‘good enough.’

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.

Autism Rights Are Human Rights

The narrative shift begins with listening to the stories that #actuallyautistic people are sharing.

Explore and learn how to shift the narrative with resources on positive autistic identity, neurodiversity, future quality of life, and creating wellness for the whole family.

Connect with a group of people who share your values. Let's #shiftthenarrative together.

Autistic Power on the Job

Endowed with the want to do their best and remain honest and loyal, autistic workers are not likely to cut corners when under deadlines, nor steal, cheat, or try to gain the upper hand. And an autistic worker will not commonly leave out pertinent information or fabricate facts to beat the workplace competition or gain recognition.

Change Starts With You

Autistic Voices Matter

Only autistic people know what it is like to be autistic. Learn from neurodivergent leaders.

Language Matters

Autistic individuals have made it clear, use identify first language. Autistic - not 'person with autism'. Drop the high/low functioning labels. Find out how and why.

Inclusion/Acceptance

Studies have shown that depression and suicide are not a co-morbid autism trait but rather a by-product of years of bullying, isolation, forced conformity and non-acceptance. Autistic people deserve to feel appreciated and understood.

Value the Identity

Autistic people are not a collection of behaviors or symptomology. All individuals are unique and nuanced. If NTs can have different personalities and preferences, so can autistics.
