It’s even worse for those with no physical symptoms – people with Autism for example – they sound, look and mostly act normal… yet put them in certain situations and they go from being “Weird People” to being considered “abnormal”… and yes, they still need the support that disability allowance brings.
So what do we have to do? Put a sign on every autistic child’s chest saying “I have Autism, I need extra care and help to get through life. My parents are not scroungers.”
