"African-American children with autism are being diagnosed almost two years later than children of any other ethnic group [in the United States], holding up their treatment, and in turn, their quality of life, according to research.

When white children were misdiagnosed with autism they were usually told they had ADHD, but Mandell discovered that Black autistic children were told they had things like psychoses, mental retardation or selective mutism. This, along with the fear that Black parents have of reporting their child’s behavioral issues due to the fact that their children are removed from the home as a result more often, makes it hard for Black children with autism to get the treatment that they need."

my first diagnosis was a psychotic disorder btw

But lets keep pretending doctors know everything and never fuck up or hold prejudices that make the diagnoses they give wrong.

This happened to my brother and noooow I know why. Nobody even tried until he was twelve and then they kept trying to diagnose him as pre-psychotic and my mom was like “no” and then they just put him in special needs for a year because THAT’S PROBABLY WHAT HE NEEDS even though he’d already been diagnosed with Asperger’s.

Lemme take another moment to reiterate that racism =/= hurt feelings.
