I have the Ableism episode. Blogs, other podcasts, books, apps. Knock yourself out.

@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

@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

@jnclausen @emjric I recommend Neurotribes as well, very informative about how poorly Autism has been diagnosed/treated since it was given a name.

@bradyd @emjric 100% yeah... fair warning, it'll piss you off. I had to stop reading multiple times because I was so frustrated with the stupidity of the world.

@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 Lots of blogs, but for sheer, organized information, it's hard to beat Musings of an Aspie.

A Thinking Person's Guide to Autism is also good.

@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
