Content Warning: mentions of restraint and seclusion, passing mentions of threats of arrest by a school resource officer and ABA, and discussion of ableism.
An incredibly blatant example is behavior modification programs and techniques like Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA). ABA seeks to make Autistic people (and “feminine boys”) "indistinguishable from peers." To be indistinguishable is to be autistic but unnoticed—to be autistic but not to be unsightly. Other behavior modification tools, such as the Behavioral Intervention Plan—almost synonymous with restraint and isolation—are often traumatizing and personally worsened my mental health. Yet, neurotypicals believe it to be justified because they believe neurotypical norms are more important than Autistic mental health.
