Autistic behavior isn’t meaningless. In fact, it’s highly adaptive.
I grew up in a family where disability was a normal fact of life. But outside my family, things are different. Too many people don’t understand disability. Worse, not all of them accept disabled people. I want that to change.
My sister, Katie, has Down syndrome. Red, who I refer to by a nickname, is autistic. I believe in creating a better world for them and everyone like them.
