Talks from 5.30pm (in person and online): What is neurodiversity and where has it come from? Increased diagnostic rates of autism, the rise of the neurodiversity movement, and growing journalism have recently fuelled autism's fame and controversy. Historian Bonnie Evans explores the metamorphosis of autism, explaining our current understanding of autism by linking it to a longer history of child development. Dean Beadle discusses his own path to understanding and celebrating his neurodivergence. He also challenges some of the myths and negative attitudes that autistic people still have to face in society.
