Autism not welcome?
The Moscow Oceanarium, which opened its doors in autumn, seems not to be welcoming everyone. A group of children diagnosed with #autism has been denied access.
"Refused. Visitors do not like to see the disabled, it disappoints them. It is not acceptable," read a note sent to teachers of a school that had tried to organize an excursion for autistic children. Further, the Moscow Oceanarium administrator suggested visiting the oceanarium on a cleanup day – so that “nobody sees them."
