'AUTISM IS A DISABILTY ... and not just because you can get a 'Disability' Parking Pass' is a recent post shared to raise awareness of Autism as 1 of 5 Developmental Disabilities: Classic Autism, Asperger Syndrome, Pervasive Developmental Disorder -Not Otherwise Specified, Rett Syndrome, and Childhood Disintegrative Disorder.[] Parents, Doctors, Therapists, Researchers, Educators, Legislators, Policymakers, Advocates, Agencies, Organizations, as well as, People living of the Autism Spectrum, have spent decades verifying, validating and educating the world about Autism as a Disability.
Autism is also viewed as an 'Invisible' Disability. It seems this is one of the primary reasons that Autism is recently being discounted as a valid,, legitimate and acceptable Disability that is worthy of and/or qualifies for Social Security, Medicaid, Insurance, Home and Community-Based Services, Supported Integrated Competitive Employment, a Free and Appropriate Public Education, Individualized Education Program, Special Education Services and Supports under the Indiviiduals with Disabilities Education Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Rehabilitation Act, and many more Rights, Benefits, Laws, and considerations afforded other Disabilities and Citizens, in general.
"Life on the Autism Spectrum can be Enjoyable.". Let's keep advocating and educating about 'Autism is a Dsability.'


Autism is a Disability. Let's keep raising awareness and advocating four rights.
