We Don’t Need a Cure for Autism – And Pushing One Is Really Messed Up
June 11, 2015 / Creigh Farinas
I used to want to cure autistic people.
I babysat for an autism support group and listened pityingly as parents described how hard it was to have a child on the spectrum – thinking nothing of the fact that those children were right there listening.
I begged my mom to take my autistic sister, Caley, and me to an autism cure event, ignoring the fact that my sister herself wasn’t interested in doing so.
