I Am Not a Token Autistic
Autism Pride Shop link *
My name is Samantha Bodwell, I am the sole Autistic on the board of the Autism
Society of Northern Virginia and due to my suggestion and further urging my
board voted unanimously in November of 2011 to rename April Autism Acceptance
Month! :) I am not a token Autistic, like some are on majority
Neurotypical boards, but a full contributing member! :) This is the
second annual celebration of Autism Acceptance Month here in Northern Virginia.
In honor of Autism Acceptance Month I have made a sign and posted it in our
Happy Autism Acceptance Month everyone.
*My Autism Pride Shop, a portion of the purchase price will be donated to
organizations that promote Autism Pride and Autism Acceptance! Please
check out my wares and if you have any ideas for things I can design don't
hesitate to suggest them!
