Autism Diva is the name of an author who comments on the science and politics of autism. On her blog she maintains a distinctly positive view of the condition, is unashamedly critical of many mainstream views and keeps tabs on the developments in the research world.
She presumably has an autistic spectrum diagnosis herself and certainly has a child with autism. The blog is far from a dispassionate analysis but is an engaging example of the thoughtful activism being promoted by a growing number of the autistic community.
One part of the blog, Autism Diva’s profile page, reminded me of the wonderfully straightforward way of communication that many people with autism prefer and made me laugh out loud:
Autism Diva loves the truth.
autism, the truth
