Between Self-Advocates and Parents
Increasingly we find tensions being expressed between the political messages and motivations of adults with disabilities, and the parents of children with disabilities. These differences can be seen particularly starkly between Deaf adults and the parents of children with hearing impairment; and between adult advocates with autism and the parents of children with autistic symtoms and diagnoses. A particularly heated discussion has been generated by the recent New York Times article entitled "How About Not 'Curing' Us, Some Autistics Are Pleading" [December 20, 2004].
