I love this post! Neurodiversity is important. I would hate to become a neurotypical after being autistic because it would be like trading in a beat up Lamborghini for a brand new pinto.
If you’ve been around here for a while then you know about my celebrity crush. No, not George Clooney, my OTHER celebrity crush, Barb Rentenbach.
Barb is a nonspeaking autistic woman who, for lack of a more delicate phrase, kicks ass. Along with her therapist extraordinaire, Lois Prislovsky, Barb is an author, producer, and co-host of a radio show. Yes, really. Because with a little thought and creativity (and, in this case, the money to emply a voice for hire), pretty much nothing is impossible.
