It is our mission this year to shine a light on the fact that being blue for April (Traditionally Autism Awareness Month) has been a failing campaign. We are encouraging you this year to join us in wearing red instead in honor of Autism Acceptance and to be a changemaker to #stopautisticabuse.
I am sure you are aware of the newest autism prevalence numbers released by the CDC of 1 in 36 total (1 in 44 girls and 1 in 11 boys). The CDC also reported that about 1 in 6 (17%) children aged 3–17 years were diagnosed with a developmental disability, as reported by parents, during a study period of 2009-2017. These included autism, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, blindness, and cerebral palsy, among others.
We would like to first point out that these, autism numbers reported by the CDC are incredibly inaccurate. These numbers are very old numbers, as these are 2020 numbers of 8-year-olds (children born in 2012) and since 80% of autistic women are diagnosed after 18-years-old, the actual numbers are much higher. In fact Dr. Stephanie Seneff has predicted that 50% of all children born in the year 2025 will be autistic. Secondly we would like to point out that these are not the numbers we should be focusing on. What we need to focus on the following numbers.
9 out of 10 Autistic Women are Victims of Sexual Assault.
2/3rds of Autistics are Victims of Bullying.
Autistics have 3 Xs the Suicide Rate
60% of Autistics Reported Symptoms of PTSD
