SUPER BOUNDARIED LEADS THE WAY


Trigger Warning!

We, my child and I, place our wellbeing and safety first.

We have to be super boundaried with ourselves and everyone around us and those we meet.

We master caring for our individualised needs, passions and personal inquiries.

We deeply value them.

Living and learning thrives this way.

For us.

When we tried to live up to others (professionals, family, friends and strangers) ideas and expectations of what we should be and be doing to prevent harsh and cruel rejection, judgement and criticism, and place 'education' as a absolute priority over everything else.

We both became suicidal.

I guess that didn't work!

So now we do this!

And thrive in the new way.

Aiming to live beyond our Autistic life expectancy of 55.

Go us!! :)

ACKNOWLEDGMENT

TRADITIONAL OWNERS

We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we work and live and recognise their continuing connection to land, water and community. We pay respect to Elders past, present and emerging.

OUR AUTISTIC/NEURODIVERGENT CULTURE

​We acknowledge our LBGTIQ2KA+kin autistic/neurodivergent humans.

 

We use identity-first language, "I am autistic", opposed to "I'm a person with autism", reflecting Autism at the core of our identity, that Autism is a Spectrum, a part of neurodivergence and not a disorder. We radically embrace and celebrate neurodivergence.

 

Authoritarian and conforming learning and approaches such as ABA or Applied Behaviour Analysis, treatment or cures, ableism or functioning labels are harmful to both FAN and their child neurodivergent neurologies.

 

AFFILIATED DISCLAIMER

 

ROARHEART™ makes no recommendations nor has any opinions about or is responsible for the content or deficit language of neurodivergence on sites and links that are external to ROARHEART™. The language that describes neurodivergent neurologies and life experiences as disordered, defective or that to be "fixed, changed and cured" is offensive and harmful to FAN and their child.

It is strongly recommended that medical, psychiatric and other therapeutic advice or treatment can only be given by suitably trained and accredited professionals. ROARHEART™ is not a substitute either inferred or directly to replace any form of treatment participants are currently engaged in. We further suggest that prior to making any changes to current treatment participants discuss this with the practitioner that prescribed the treatment or at least get a second opinion from a suitably qualified and accredited clinician. We cannot do this we are not qualified.
