Awesome Anthony and Autistic Contribution

Filed Under (Acceptance, Contributions to Society) by Estee on 24-08-2012

I think Anthony is awesome.

I think that as autistic people age, it is wonderful that they can have assistants to enable them to participate in employment, college, university and like Anthony, starting a business.

I think that as parents, Anthony can help us understand that being in society is about supporting one another — that it’s more than okay to be autistic and have support if it’s required.

I think Anthony redefines what it means to be “productive.”

I hope you do too. As we begin a new school year, let’s think not only about inclusion, but how we can support autistic people as autistic people. Meet Anthony:

Best of luck in your new business, Anthony!

About Me


ESTÉE KLAR

I’m a PhD candidate at York University, Critical Disability Studies, with a multi-disciplinary background in the arts as a curator and writer. I am the Founder of The Autism Acceptance Project (www.taaproject.com), and an enamoured mother of my only son who lives with the autism label. I like to write about our journey, critical issues regarding autism in the area of human rights, law, and social justice, as well as reflexive practices in (auto)ethnographic writing about autism.
