More of Ellen's books…
“The word “autistic” is accurate. But so are other words that we no longer use to describe people: spinster (unmarried woman), hobo (migrant worker), cripple (person with a physical handicap), and so on. The fact that a person is unmarried or has sustained a mobility-reducing injury or birth defect certainly figures into their life experiences, but it does not define their character—unless they or we let it.”
Ellen Notbohm, Ten Things Every Child with Autism Wishes You Knew

“Presuming that a nonspeaking child has nothing to say is like presuming that an adult without a car has nowhere to go.”
Ellen Notbohm, Ten Things Every Child with Autism Wishes You Knew

“If we can't start by seeing an autistic child as inherently capable, interesting, and valuable, no amount of education or therapy we layer on top is going to matter.”
Ellen Notbohm, Ten Things Every Child with Autism Wishes You Knew: 3rd Edition Revised and Updated
