Sue Rubin Speaks Out

Written Material

This is an excellent article by a young political activist who also has autism. She writes about her decision (which in some ways seems more like an obligation) to organise autistic people in order to advocate for their human rights - particularly in relation to the use of aversive behaviour 'therapy', which she argues is actually a euphemism for 'abuse'. The strengthening element of this piece is her clarity of thought and her methods of activism - for example, finding a role model and using his work as a framework for her own. Keywords: Advocacy, Self determination
