The Military Family Services Has Fallen To Autism Speaks

It is with a heavy heart that I have to report that Military Family Services (MFRC) has fallen to Autism Speaks. They have partnered with Autism Speaks to make a free downloadable toolkit. There have been some comments left by those that know how evil Autism Speaks is but the MFRC refused to listen. Instead they doubled down. I guarantee

Medic Alert Canada: Epic Failure at Representation

It’s April which is commonly known as Autism Awareness Month. Autistic people are being subjected to Parent Advocates and the tragedy narrative all over the internet this month. Medic Alert Canada was also sadly quite guilty of this. They featured a Video that was labeled as Autism Safety: Resources, tools and advice from experienced moms. However there was 1 Mom

Kismutt Rescue and Discrimination

It came to my attention yesterday that an Ontario animal rescue was discriminating against Autistic children. This was horrible because the only reason given for their “rule” was a child’s neurology. They did try to claim that Autistic children were abusive to animals and listed two examples from their own experience. This was immediately called out as bullshit (BS) as

Monthly Roundup! -February 2022

This month was huge because I got an indoor exercise bike from Costco that is IFIT compatible.

Confidentiality of Diagnostic Paperwork

This oddly enough comes up a lot especially in advocate spaces. There is always some misguided person demanding to see the diagnostic paperwork from an advocate in order to prove that they are autistic. However they have NO legal right to it as it’s protected under the law. However even when someone has NO legal right to the information, people

How CBC News Failed Autistics

So I woke up this morning checking my social media sites and when I came across on Autism article. I of course clicked on CBC’s news article thinking that it would be interesting.. instead what I found was an article full of misinformation. There is a notable lack of Autistic voices in the article. (Article linked at the bottom of

Companies and the DTC

For those that don’t know the DTC is short for the disability tax credit in Canada. This isn’t just for Autism but any disability although with Autism it’s a lifelong thing while other disabilities (broken leg for an example) are temporary and you may need to reapply. Now the form itself is in PDF, Large Print, Braille, and Digital Audio
