Help promote true autism awareness:

Sign the petition to Sesame Street to reconsider their partnership with Autism Speaks

And support companies that partner with pro-neurodiverse charities, like ThreadMeUp.

  1. I think a lot of businesses and companies want to support autism, so they just Google "autism" and find what looks like the biggest organization. Their hearts are in the right place, but they should just do a little more research... maybe by reading blogs by people with autism!

    1. Indeed. Autism awareness is not the same as understanding. But Chili's, to their credit, listened and backtracked. Hopefully others will follow.
