The Department of Disability, Inclusion and Special Needs (DISN) at the School of Education presents 'From pathology to neurodiversity: a conversation about autism with Dr. Wenn Lawson and Annie Etherington.'
This event will pursue two themes: how framing of autism influences the way professionals think about and respond to autism and how it impacts the identity, self-esteem and well-being of the autistic individual. The event will discuss new narratives that are emerging, and the growth of the autistic advocacy movement and ‘Nothing about us without us.’
Professor Karen Guldberg will chair the discussion.
