@emjric All of Amethyst Shaber's videos are great.
This playlist has all their Ask an Autistic episodes which are very informative and good introductions to a lot of topics
@Laura_I Thanks so much for this!
@emjric I just finished reading Neurotribes by Silberman, which is basically a complete history of autism, and also currently reading Autism in Heels which is making me cry pretty much non stop; highly recommend both
@emjric As others have mentioned, Neurotribes is really good for a deep, thoroughly researched look into the history behind our awareness and knowledge of autism. There is more recently revealed historical information about Hans Asperger's relationship with the Nazis.
I highly recommend Luke Beardon's book, Autism and Asperger Syndrome in Adults.
I especially like his term, the predominant neurotype (PNT) to describe neurotypical people.
@emjric In addition to Ask An Autistic!, on Youtube I would recommend these.
For mental health in general, I love Kati Morton
@emjric Check out the book / papers by Edgar Kellenberger (Hebrew Bible expert, father of a son with a mental disability).
@emjric I just finished Brilliant Imperfection by Eli Clare and it was wonderful. It’s more about disability in general, but v applicable to neurodiversity. It’s written by transgender man and has a nice intersectional perspective
This is an instance for folks who follow The Liturgists Podcast, The Alien Podcast, and other things The Liturgists create.
