Neurodiversity and autism​

What is neurodiversity and how has it changed the way we talk about autism? Is it always helpful for people who are autistic and their families? As video app Tik Tok became more and more popular, so too did the use of #Neurodivergent. Videos using this hashtag have racked up 6.6 billion views. Many people who are autistic use this hashtag when posting positive experiences, to help improve understanding amongst their followers. But some say that social media is fuelling an epidemic of people self-diagnosing and that this is damaging for autistic people.

Interesting programme, but I found both the main speakers a bit 'extreme' in their views, and neither really seemed interested in broadening their views to accommodate the reality of others.

All up, I'm not sure what to take away from the session. Actually the pre intro where she explained how to support her during the show was the only but I think I found useful.
