No More Disrespect For The Autism Community!The Autism Site
Take Action Now!
The world of autism can be confusing, which is why the autism community doesn’t need individuals fabricating false information. Dr. Tony Attwood and Dr. Isabelle Hénault, both doctors within the autism community, are basing their practices on a condition called Cassandra Affective Deprivation Disorder — one they claim results from the emotional stress from a relationship with an autistic individual.
While stress may be a reality for some, CADD isn’t based on science or research. By promoting CADD without evidence, Attwood and Hénault demonstrate a lack of respect to the concerns of the autism community. The endorsement of CADD allows partners of autistic individuals to use their autism as a scapegoat against them.
Write to Dr. Tony Attwood and Dr. Isabelle Hénault asking them to either confirm CADD’s existence through tested research or to stop promoting it once and for all.
