Leaders Around Me: Autobiographies of Autistics who Type...

Come participate in a progressive discussion focused on topics concerning neurodiversity, societal inclusion, and autistic empowerment.

This 3-month series will discuss the book "Leaders Around Me." "Leaders Around Me: Autobiographies of Autistics who Type, Point, and Spell to Communicate is a compilation of 45 autobiographies of extraordinary individuals who use keyboards, letter boards, and communication devices. The authors demonstrate that people who experience communication differences have the potential to achieve major accomplishments under accessible, inclusive, and supportive circumstances. Each autobiographical narrative ends with reflection questions to encourage reader engagement and reflection. All autistic individuals deserve autistic leaders around them for support and mentoring."
