My personal experiences as a so-called “high-functioning” Aspergirl, in teaching the piano to autistic children and in researching autism, have ignited in me a wish to critique current views of autism as a condition that renders the autistic as being more or less than human. To support autism awareness, I give talks and trainings both in- and outside academia. My autism plays an important role in my scholarly writings as well and I am working on my ‘auti-ethnography’ – an academic work that combines neuropsychology with lived experiences (as an autistic¬†individual and as a teacher for children with autism).
