Autism allies

Allies are not the people who assume that they know what is best for us, and try to speak for us.

They are the people who, when we speak for ourselves, will hold up a megaphone so that the world can hear us.

Whether we speak by writing essays, by handing someone a picture card, or by biting a hated therapist, we need to be heard. Allies are the people who make sure that happens.

There's a nice visual with that one.
