This is a post to let you all know about our upcoming Autistics’ Roundtable Webinar, next week on Tuesday. The topic for March’s installment is the media’s representation of autism specifically and disability broadly.
To kick off the event, Claire will present the history of autism/neurodiversity on screen(and you can read an article she wrote for the Tennessean on disability in the media at this link!).
After the presentation portion, we’ll have a dynamic discussion with our panelists. This month, they are UC Berkeley student Hari Srinivasan and neurodiversity consultant Christa Holmans. Hari has been recognized nationally for his work as a non-speaking autistic advocate (including on former President Obama’s Instagram account!). Christa, better known as Neurodivergent Rebel, is an impactful voice on multiple social media platforms. You can find them on Instagram at @NeurodivergentRebel and YouTube under “Neurodivergent Rebel.”
