"Neurotypicality Research Institute" (formerly "Save The Neurotypicals!") is a satirical account, whose Autistic author uses to flip ableist language about us and turn it on the Neurotypicals. It's witty to hilarious.
Another intersectional perspective. She is where I first learned about how much Autism and ADHD increases our chances of experiencing violence from police. Our facial expressions are apparently what they're taught as suspicious?
You may have seen Marina Amaral's books. She is kinda famous for two books she co-wrote with historian Dan Jones, where she painstakingly colorized black and white photos, and he wrote the back story of the photos. Lots of photos, but also some Autistic and ND activism.
“I think I’m pretty great and have interesting thoughts and infodumps. More seriously, I am a late diagnosed AuDHDer [autistic and ADHD] who is trained as an ADHD coach. I Tweet a lot about my experiences and realizations. It’s not an option in the neurotypes, but I’m also dyspraxic. Sometimes I talk about being a dyspraxic aerialist and how I do movement things I like while being clinically uncoordinated.”
“I'm neurodivergent (diagnosed with cPTSD a year ago, on top of an existing diagnosis of severe depression). And also I've been spending a lot of time and effort lately thinking about the most efficient ways to accomplish clear and complete communication, including starting my own social media site dedicated to exploring and promoting that idea not just by cultural norms on my server, but by developing tech to help ‘nudge’ people towards generally good behavior with each other.”
