Something Interesting with Someone Interesting


Would you like to learn more about Autism and the Social Model of Disability?

This session is intended to challenge preconceptions about autism and give a different perspective on how they think about disability!


Re-Defining Our Lives: Towards a Social Understanding of Neurodiversity


This session explains that how we define autism shapes our understanding of the condition as a society.


Drawing on his lived experience of understanding his autism, assessments and defining the condition for himself, Alex strongly advocates for the Social Model of Disability.


At one point during the session, Alex will be conducting a thought experiment, describing “neuro-typical” traits in the same way you often see autistic traits presented in the media, as a way of illustrating the importance of language in these discussions.
