Don’t Stop: Negotiating Autism and Academia

This talk charts the ‘unlikely’ trajectory of an Autistic individual who started speaking at age 11, and then learned to read and write at the age of 18. Twelve years later he gained a PhD. As part of National Inclusion Week this talk highlights some of the difficulties in making that journey into academia as an Autistic individual and the importance of never giving up on even the most insurmountable of dreams.
