I like Donna’s balanced, equality/humanitarian and holistic qualities that she brings to mix when talking, presenting and writing about Autism and how it is a Fruit Salad (D.Williams 1995/2005) in her many books she challenges tired stereotypes and brings inclusion for all on the spectrum which I agree with such as people who have a learning disability, people who are “seemingly” non-verbal and/or have both on the Autism spectrum. Breaking down the different “pieces” which makes a person’s unique profile and also letting everybody know that personhood is important for the person with autism themselves and others around them – and that everybody should have right to be heard and included in society. 🙂
Thanks Donna 😉
I like Jennifer’s positive attitude and with that gives practical and educational advice to people on the autism spectrum – breaking down the old assumptions that people on the spectrum can’t learn through her presentations, books and videos she advocates for young folk on the spectrum giving not only them hope but also the parents, carers and guardians as well. This in turn is giving people a fair chance to live their life to full and has equal opportunities. She also also is very passionate about females on the spectrum and continues to advocate, educate and present to make not only people aware but the realities also. Jennifer is for inclusion for all in society. 🙂
Thanks Jennifer 😉
I like them both for their contributions to Autism and what that means for others and the wider world, I’m inspired by their selflessness, empowerment, positivity, encouragement and myth busting. I like that they have in turn empowered others on the spectrum to follow their own path (what ever that may be)! They have helped educational services, parents, people on the spectrum and more through their kindness and generosity. What amazing ladies they both are.
