Autisme : critères diagnostiques du DSM-5

Je suis autiste et cela n’est pas « exactement » ce que vous croyez... par Miss Titi, du réseau DÉesCAaArticle du 16 mars 2012 Ailleurs, partout dans le monde sauf en France [3], c’est un trouble neurologique qui se situe au niveau du sillon temporal supérieur.

Je suis autiste et cela n'est pas « exactement » ce que vous croyez...

Malheureusement, partout sur Terre, le problème est abordé de l’extérieur. Par les conséquences de ce trouble neurologique mais jamais (ou presque) par sa nature. Parce que nous ne sommes pas crédibles en tant que « fous », vous n’écoutez que les témoignages qui vont dans votre sens : comme « type de personnalité », ou « manière d’être » ou encore, pour les plus en retard d’entre vous « TOC », « dépression », « psychose infantile »...

Syndrome d'Asperger – le webdoc. Radical Neurodivergence Speaking: "forgiving" people who aren't sorry. Not gunna happen. This has been the theme of this past week or so, and an intermittent theme of my entire life thus far: some person or group does something shitty to me, I am angry about it, that does not change because the shitty people don't care to make amends, some random, usually privileged asshat comes by on their high horse and tells me to forgive the original shitty person/group/whatever.

Radical Neurodivergence Speaking: "forgiving" people who aren't sorry. Not gunna happen.

Radical Neurodivergence Speaking: How my language happens. (or: I'm not as articulate as you think)

Yes, That Too: Ableism is to blame

I saw a girl post an apology for the fact that she has autism, that she will never be what her parents want her to be.

I’m Pretty Sure I’m an Unfriendly Autistic

Yep. I’m the person who actually wants society to enable their weird behaviors and isn’t going to let allistic supremacy get in the way of my self-determination.

We Don't Need a Cure for Autism – And Pushing One Is Really Messed Up. I used to want to cure autistic people. I babysat for an autism support group and listened pityingly as parents described how hard it was to have a child on the spectrum – thinking nothing of the fact that those children were right there listening. I begged my mom to take my autistic sister, Caley, and me to an autism cure event, ignoring the fact that my sister herself wasn’t interested in doing so.
