I can't stamp out all the negative comments that people say on twitter or social media about disabilities, but maybe I can educate others on its dehumanising effect, and in doing so help parents understand that there is a world of support out there. Imagine Katie spending a day or a week with me, seeing what my world looks like. That would be a show on Autism worth watching.
I do not have the likes of Ms Hopkins social presence and media privilege in which to air my views, but as a mother of a child with autism, what I do have is a voice and the right, as does anyone else, to say how her views impact upon those with a disability. Her words impact upon me, my family and wider society.
