Rethinking Autism

Amanda Baggs creates one of the most original, thought-provoking videos I have seen in… well, ever.

I was intruiged by her channel description:

“This channel will mostly contain videos made about autistic liberation and disability rights, for the autistic self-advocacy website autistics.org. It also contains a few more personal videos. Website: http://ballastexistenz.autistics.org/”

..I worked for a special needs school in CA for two and a half years, and up until that experience it never really occured to me in my daily life that people with Autism had much of a viewpoint on anything. This is an honest admission, and clearly after that experience my perception changed. I hope you watch this video because it’s a definite eye opener.
