Shopping for Neurodiversity
When you buy products through the TAAP page on GiveBackAmerica.org (which bills itself as "America's Online Charity Mall") the sellers will donate a percentage of your purchases to TAAP. Participating stores include such well-known retailers as Barnes & Noble, Target, Best Buy, Office Depot, and many more.
I would like to thank Rob LaPlante of GiveBackAmerica.org for providing this opportunity for the autistic community to financially support TAAP's goal of promoting acceptance of, and accommodations for, autistic people in society. Unlike some other nonprofit groups that claim to speak for our community, TAAP has autistic board members and takes its direction from those who are the most affected by society's attitudes and prejudices toward the autistic minority population, that is, autistic people ourselves. TAAP presents lectures and exhibitions to raise awareness of autism as part of human diversity, and it seeks to investigate and support educational needs backed by accurate science.
Those who would like to see more understanding and acceptance of autism in our society can now contribute to the cause simply and easily. I've linked to the TAAP shopping page in my sidebar, and I encourage other autistic rights bloggers to do the same.
