My personal experiences as a 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.

Inside the Autside
I teach piano to children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). This is very rewarding, as music forms a bridge we can use to gain attention, learn or sharpen skills and improve their quality of life in various ways.
