Nothing about Us without Us

Nothing about Us without Us is the slogan for the Autistic Self-Advocacy Network (ASAN). This slogan echoes the voices of transgender activists who have demanded a place at the table in the discussion of transgender needs, rights, and services. There is a high prevalence of autistic spectrum and otherwise neurodivergent people in the transgender community. In this workshop we will hear directly from neurodivergent people—in person and by video and spoken word—so as to build understanding among professionals in how to better meet and serve neurodivergent transgender/non-binary individuals.
