Shannon Des Roches Rosa, in “Some autistic people can’t tolerate face masks. Here’s how we’re managing with our son.”:
Autistic people have varied individual experiences, preferences and needs, so although some kids can’t tolerate a mask, others are just fine with it. But before requiring them to put one on, consider the factors that may make masks intolerable or inadvisable for an autistic person.
C. M. Condo, in “what doesn’t kill me (isn’t going to work)”:
After the denial of my disability claim, which was upsetting enough, I had to get back on the horse and try to hunt down an attorney willing to help with my appeal. When I finally got one to call me back, I realized why no-one else had. As disabled as I now am, I am still not disabled “enough” to receive government aid.
