VIDEO: Turning the tables on autism

Pluss Video 17 May 2022
Charlotte and George

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….



Turning The Tables

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.
