D is for Disabled - Autism Acceptance Month

From the Autistic Family Collective:

“Accepting that autistic people are disabled means that we accept the social model of disability rather than the medical model of disability.

It is not our differences which disable us, but rather, it is society’s inability to accommodate and accept our differences which disable us.”

See two great videos to help explain the Social Model of Disability and read more here:
