The blondes discuss how they are able to place a (Spanish) accent on “lo positivo” in light of the fact that #2020problems, on top of #autismproblems feel SUPERRRRR heavy. 🙆♀️🙆♀️
Listen as they sip 🍷🍷and share their thoughts on some tough autism parenting topics, and toast to coming out on the other side. Everyone is hurting right now. 😔
In this episode, Brenda & Kristi refer to recent news updates involving severe autism. Here are some handy links to info they promised to share:
Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty for Alejandro Ripley’s Mother Patricia for his May 2020 murder. Who’s going to be in a “better place” now? Follow Disorderly Blondes Autism Podcast for updates.
Listen to Season 3 Episode 32: Mourning Alejandro: The Impact of Filicide on the Autism Community
Read Disorderly Blondes Autism Podcast’s position on filicide in the autism community.
Death By Severe Autism by Lee Elizabeth Wachtel, MD is a reaction to the house fire death of CA autism advocate Feda Almaliti and severely autistic son Mu. The doctor reminds disability advocates that some people are #autisticAF no matter how much the “neurodiverse” must have to hold back from covering their ears at the uttering of term “severe.” Be sure you do not miss Feda’s sister Maysoon’s response to complaints about this article. Powerful stuff. Thank you National Council on Severe Autism for educating us and providing a beautiful platform in which to advocate for our “overshadowed” (your word) population.
Stay tuned as the blondes plan to dedicate an episode to parent shaming in the very near future.
