I'm writing this as Kim Rossi, autism Mom, born at Beth Israel Hospital in Boston almost more decades ago than I have fingers on my hand. Age of Autism can not and will not endorse any candidate. But we can share report on how the candidates will perhaps treat our community and the issues that matter to us. We've seen Presidents make promises that aren't worth their weight in feathers. We've been lied to. Marginalized. Disenfranchised. The Covid lockdown and vaccine mandates were catastrophic for us.
When Robert's uncle John was President in 1960, the autism rate was 1 in 10,000. It was unheard of. Psychiatrists went a full career never seeing a patient. Pediatricians had waiting rooms full of chatty two year olds who sat in Mother's lap waiting their turn. Today? The rate is 1 in 36 and childhood as we once knew it is utterly destroyed by far more than autism.
In 2023, labels have little meaning. What's a Republican today? What's a Democrat? What is pro-life. What is is pro-choice? By whose definition, your parents? Your grandparents?
I hope to see you there. KIM
