Went for a haircut with support worker. After I had sat down he asked my support worker what I wanted, my support worker then told him to ask me.
Then when he had finished he actually turned round again to my support worker to ask if the haircut was ok.
It is my hair and I am capable of saying "yes it's ok" or "no it's not" so why can't he just ask me?
Life is hard. You have to make a judgement call whether you go somewhere alone or with help of a support worker.
By being with someone who clearly supports you in day to day activities you are being labeled as second class.
but how does everyone seem to always know I'm with a support worker? I'm not in a wheelchair or anything
Tell them that you’re the support worker! Lol
Ask your support worker
Some people look "more autistic" than others: https://www.cbsnews.com/news/children-with-autism-have-distinct-facial-features-study/
I don't know what you look like though.
