UNTIL EVERYONE UNDERSTANDS

The video calls for no comment from me – please watch and share:#

I am branch secretary of NAS West Norfolk and #actuallyautistic (diagnosed 10 years ago at the comparatively advanced age of 31). I am a keen photographer, so that most of my own posts contain photos. I am a keen cricket fan and often write about that subject. I also focus a lot on politics and on nature.

  1. Nice! Executive Functioning Disorders (aka “invisible” disorders – of which autism is one as well) need a lot of awareness boosting. This is a great video – encouraging without shaming. Sadly, each individual with any of what I call “the alphabet disorders” seems to feel the same way about the lack of understanding and acceptance, myself included.

    I have saved the link to this post, and will add it to my monthly Awareness Calendar for this year. Thanks for posting, Thomas.

    1. Thank you for your supportive comments. Awareness (which in Britain at least is now fairly good) is just the start – it needs to lead to understanding AND then acceptance which is where the real work still has to be accomplished.

      1. LOTS of work to be done here in America still – and I doubt our new administration is likely to be very helpful, especially with appropriating research funding. ::groan::

        Our new president is actually ready to reopen the vaccine wars – more likely to waste precious resources repeating studies that have already taken millions of dollars – finding no evidence of causation, only correlation. That funding could certainly be put to better use (but might not make his soundbite twitter finger as happy – he does love to rouse the rabble).

        Mental Health Awareness overall will have to be SERIOUSLY stepped up in the next four years, I’m sure, at least in this country. Many Americans seem to believe that autism is a sign of low intelligence – which, we both know, couldn’t be further from the truth.
