Tell Me I’m Exaggerating (CW: Inhuman hatred towards autistics, eugenics, swearing)

TW: The Holocaust, Eugenics, Hate Speech Against Autistics, Nazis, Trump

Because many existing communication methods are underrepresented in most schools, I created a survey to find out what methods students use, what they are being taught to use and how successful each is.  Additionally I am curious to know whether a student’s school allows the communication method chosen by each student to be the most beneficial, and if not, how the student then communicates their complex thinking and knowledge.

This survey uses a google form and is completely anonymous.  You will…
