According to a news report, the organisation “Autism Speaks” suffered a big drop in revenue in 2016.
This follows on the heels of several resignations of high-ranking staffers, as well as the death of Suzanne Wright. I feel indifferent. For years, “Autism Speaks” used the tagline “It’s time to listen” while simultaneously ignoring and silencing autistic voices who were unhappy with the path the organisation took. Perhaps now, things can improve.
