Ryan wanted to write a blog post about his thoughts for World Autism Awareness Day which is today, April 2nd. Here is what he had to say:
HARD TO REALLY SAY BUT I WILL TRY.
CARE ENOUGH TO DO ACTIONS MORE THAN JUST WORDS. TREATMENT OF AUTISTICS NEEDS IMPROVEMENT.
“Ryan, people are going to ask me what you mean by treatment. Can you elaborate on this?”
TO TREAT ALL PEOPLE WITH THE SAME RESPECT THAT YOU WOULD TREAT YOUR FRIENDS.
“Do you feel that you are treated poorly in society?”
TOO OFTEN YES. WILLING TO SAY FINDING IT IMPROVED WHEN I WAS ABLE TO USE A LETTER BOARD.
CARING TO SHARE THIS FOR ALL OF MY AUTISTIC FRIENDS WHO CANNOT COMMUNICATE YET.
DON’T DISMISS INTELLIGENCE BECAUSE THEY CAN’T PROVE HOW SMART THEY ARE.
ARE ALL PEOPLE DESERVING A RESPECTFUL LIFE?
I THINK YES.
