A note for families

Families can be strong allies for their autistic family members.
Many years ago, parents of disabled kids started getting together.
They worked to close institutions.
They fought for their kids to get support in the community.
Parents are still fighting today for the rights of their kids.
You can be a part of that fight, too!

Families can make a big difference for their family members.
You can support your autistic family member to have a good life.
You can help fight for our rights.
You can make sure your family is a safe place for us.
You can help other families be allies, too.

There is some information and tools just for you at the end of this chapter.
