I don’t know about you all, but I am very skeptical of any autism “advocacy” organization that gets together in the Cayman Islands. Why? Because getting everyone there isn’t cheap, and it isn’t cheap to have a conference there. And it’s much, much more costly than having it in an American city, or over Skype. I can’t help but wonder where the money they spent in getting everyone there and having their anti-vaccine discussions came from and how it could have been better used to help autistic children and adults live better lives.
But who am I to judge? The following screen capture was taken from the Facebook page of the woman who, in her own words, doesn’t have $800 to her name. Must be great to not have any money and still get to go to the Cayman Islands.
My autism advocates don’t go to exotic places and spend money on glamorous trips. What about yours?
