“AUTISM TREATMENT” aka “Autistic Conversion Therapy” I.e. “abuse”, basically. It is no different from any LGBT conversion program. It’s ableist, abusive and operates under the assumption that “Autism” is something you need to be “rid of” like a disease. What we maybe should do instead is empower, support and foster more inclusive spaces for Autistic individuals to connect and embrace their inherent uniqueness without the shame of feeling like they’re broken or flawed.
