A Brief Statement On ABA

In the #ActuallyAutistic Community it is well known that ABA is abusive. All ABA, is abusive and this blog doesn’t support those who claim any form is not or articles citing “safe ABA”.

A great paper was written by the Facebook page Ask an Autistic` on ABA and a great blog is currently being ran with plenty info on this. Go Here for More on Why ABA is Abusive.

 

“ABA is abusive because it forces autistic children to undergo undue stress up to the point of panic and overstimulation while suppressing their ability to regulate this stress by forbidding stimming and self regulation activities. It violates their autonomy as a person and ignores ideas of consent. This kind of isolation style abuse between an authority and an individual would be considered inhumane in any other case yet we put young children through this. The result, not suprisingly, is ptsd as indicated by many autistic adults who have been through ABA.” -DAMIEN

If asked why it is abusive by allistic “Autism Parents *tm” feel free to use my answer here or link to the resources .

Panicked Lights

I worry, my heart races
I cannot breathe, choking
The world snaps around me
I’m alone, scared, pacing
The skin burns, eyes water
The world slams into me
The lights blaze down
My eyes can’t take the light
The day lasts too long
The night too short
The sounds too loud
My head just hurts
Let me free this rocking
Back and forth clawing
The rising inside me
Will this be how I live
Until the day I die?

Greetings blog followers, I recently informed you all in another post that I am autistic. Over a week ago a page in the UK, particularly Glasgow asked autistic people what flash designs we would like to see for a charity. Many of us, including myself asked for the neurodiversity symbol also known as the rainbow infinity. I would have screens of this except I did not expect that not only would they not listen but in an effort to avoid accountability they deleted the thread.
