Disability or difference? How autism is understood varies from place to place.

Drawn from lived experience, this book explores the question of what autism is, and how it is best viewed in society. Dr Jim Hoerricks PhD – an academic and non-verbal autistic person – interrogates different models of disability, and considers how autism might be seen as a difference in human experience, in light of the need for accommodations and structural supports.

Positioning autism as both a set of traits and an identity, No place for autism? asks what can be done to give place for autistic people and communities.
