Apple Celebrates Autism Acceptance Month with “Dillan’s Voice”

Autistic high school student Dillan Barmache,  has so much to say and people around the world are listening. “Dillan’s Voice” can be seen on Apple’s website in celebration of Autism Acceptance Month.

Apple has chosen Acceptance over Awareness and it’s a big deal.

Why ?

Because 16 year old Dillan Barmache communicates using an iPad, you don’t see that in the mainstream media every day.

And because Autism Acceptance Month was started by #ActuallyAutistic people. ( You can read more about it’s evolution  from organizer Paula Durbin-Westby )

The world is listening  and it’s so exciting.

Not being able to speak doesn’t mean you don’t have a great deal to say.
