Dora Raymaker posted an excellent post, here. Autistic adults are NOT "trapped" in a child's mind. Autistic disability is developmental; that means autistics PROGRESS throughout their lifetime. (Of course, autistic people do NOT progress without treatments, services, supports, and accommodations.)
Here is another of Raymaker's posts that advocates beautifully.
I have feelings, and they CAN be hurt. Autistic people are NOT emotionless like some would have you believe.
