Children are NOT pets to be trained with clicks like dogs? Who knew!

The facepalm is strong with this one. If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times, YOU do not get to define my level of functionality by YOUR neurotypical standards.

YOU do not get to define my level of functionality by YOUR neurotypical standards.

YOU do not get to define my level of functionality by YOUR neurotypical standards.

YOU do not get to define my level of functionality by YOUR neurotypical standards.

YOU do not get to define my level of functionality by YOUR neurotypical standards.

YOU do not get to define my level of functionality by YOUR neurotypical standards.

Is it sinking in yet????

“I also saw another video showing how everyone should be using TAGteach, which stands for Teaching with Acoustic Guidance. Basically, it is clicking a device every time the person “behaves appropriately”. The neurotypical behaviorist defines what is “appropriate behavior”. It is like training dogs and it is dehumanizing. It can also trigger abuse survivors. It makes Autistics dependent on the validation of a non-autistic person for everything they do.”
