Here at Pluss, we spend a lot of time talking to participants and finding out more about them and what support we can offer. This time we thought we would turn the tables.
We put George – who has autistic characteristics – into the interviewer’s seat so that he could ask Charlotte, a Learning Disabilities Coordinator for Pluss, what it’s like NOT to be on the autistic spectrum.
Take a look at the video and find out how Charlotte felt when the shoe was on the other foot….
What is it like NOT to live with autism? We switched the interviewer and interviewee for a very different take on neurodiversity
Neurodiversity denotes a natural variation in cognitive functioning and includes many non-dominant neurotypes such as autism, ADHD/ADD, Dyslexia, OCD, and Dyspraxia. Positive neurodiversity perspectives value and cherish such variation in cognitive functioning, and do not see it as a marker of negative difference.Exeter University
