support ppl with developmental disabilities even when they aren’t all happiness all the time. support autistic people who lie and ppl with downs who don’t keep an angelic smile plastered on their face and ppl who do not act grateful for every little act of respect and decency you do. support ppl with developmental disabilities who don’t fit the positive stereotypes or the negative ones.
give them autonomy. take them seriously. support them, whether they fit your bullshit expectations or not.
