The subject matters on this site will be the following
- Addressing a civil rights issue in New Hampshire surrounding anyone with a developmental disability such as the autism spectrum disorder and other related conditions
- The inability for an individual (whether they are their own guardian or not) to have equal rights
- The ability to speak, and the ability to question people in power (reasonably)
- The ability to have a similar life equivalent to their “peers”
- The chance to be “normal” as much as they can.
The civil rights crisis dates from the original version of this post:
- A target year of 2020 when special needs adults with autistic disorders could become a “hopeless” generation of people where they “won’t be able to have” a a happy life and be controlled by normal, incompetent management wherever that is.
- Better actions could result by:
- understanding the fact that the delivery system is broken;
- understanding the training system is broken, both on professionals, and down to the individuals themselves
- Learning from relevant history of the first generation of autistics (ages of about 32 to about 25), diagnosed before the days of the Web, and around the time when institutions were supposed to go away; but many did get diverted out of district, often returning back to the community being a victim of bullying or just lowest level of respect
- The need to educate Millenials (born circa 1982 to 1995, give or take a few years for some) the real facts of autism, not the media or government driven propaganda. If the numbers are true, American millennials are about 100 million, if there are 1 and 50 cases of autism, these two groups – for the most part need to integrate and assimilate with each other. Millenials are typically intolerant because many were not exposed as many were out of districted, during the boom of the first generation.
- Learning about government accountability, the need of ethics reform in the c-suite (or the corner offices at both the state and school district levels), the need of openness and transparency
- And more accountability to teachers, as these people will be responsible for the vulernable years of early adulthood to the most vulernable groups of society.
- Basically educate the people in the state I live in, New Hampshire and that state only.
In 2018, I feel that the system is so broken and far from repair, that I feel this will happen regardless and have plans to deal with it when that time comes.
