Carry on the Conversation

Autism has become trendy on TV and in books, with autistic characters popping up in every imaginable genre, but so many of these characters are written shallowly. Played for laughs or for pity, or dependent on inaccurate stereotypes, many depictions of autism in the media leave autistic people and those who love them feeling unsatisfied. However many other authors exist who are doing an excellent job writing autism. If you know where to look, you can find portrayals that feel real and humanizing, that go beyond stereotypes and that give their characters agency, depicting their needs as valid, whether or not the surrounding society agrees. Many of these authors are autistic themselves, and are writing from an ownvoices perspective. Others may not be, but have done the work of researching and listening respectfully to autistic people, being willing to discard their preconceptions in order to understand autistic experiences on a deep level.
