WAPO Op-Ed: Why Sensory Friendly Should Be the Law of the Land
Enormous gratitude to The Washington Post Op-ed Editors Anna Walsh & team for publishing my opinion on true access for the Autism community. Excellent points were raised that SF events would also benefit persons with PTSD, and of course the disability community at large. Comments on WAPO are rising both for & against ~ always interesting to see how offended people are about opportunities which in no way eclipse their own rights but expand for others who don’t have them. https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/my-son-has-autism-he-deserves-separate-sensory-friendly-opportunities/2018/11/27/b1268848-a0a4-11e8-8e87-c869fe70a721_story.html?utm_term=.41ff55e397fa
