I can tell you really care about your kid. And I can tell reading this made you feel attacked. I hope you will reflect on those feelings, and read some of my other writing about Autism, some of which does talk about the impairments I have. And I hope that you will seek out Autistic adults to have in you and your child’s life. Speaking to Autistic adults — of all ability levels — will really help you see this issue in a more nuanced, hopeful, and less defensive way. Best of luck to you, and feel free to DM me if you want links to resources by Autistic people, for Autistic people.
