Almost faculty @UNT_KHPR. I research how to help persons w #autism improve motor skills & physical activity. I ride my bike to work everyday. It makes me happy.
In fact, we are often biased in predictable ways. We make mistakes in an oddly repetitive fashion. Human nature evolved not to be logical but to survive and procreate, many of our decisions are shaped through emotion and intuition more so than carefully reasoned analysis.
If even a quarter of the money collected for Autism Research and/or paid by parents into Autism “Therapies” were instead put into educating the public that Autistics are just humans with some differences, or into creating inclusion programs in schools, workplaces, and society as a whole, Autistics and their families would benefit a great deal more.
