Thank you for a wonderful Neuro Pride 2022!
Celebrate ADHDay on 11/11/22!
Usually, talk about ADHD focuses on a set of personal shortcomings. We say: In the bin with this kind of thing!
ADHD is a neurotype just like being Autistic or neurotypical. It comes with strengths and struggles, just like every other neurotype. Putting the onus on the individual to ‘fix’ themself when the rest of society isn’t even trying to fix itself – not fair. Enough with the shame. Enough with the deficit and disorder language. Enough talking about us without us.

Autistic Pride was inspired by and modelled on LGBTQ+ Pride. To be proud is nothing new to members of the LGBTQ+ community. But to many people, being proud to be autistic is still a radical idea. However, I would argue that it isn’t radical enough.
“I’m so good at masking that I’m worried that when I start my diagnostic assessment shortly I won’t be able to drop it enough to get diagnosed.” But what is masking and what is the price we pay for it? Read Jonks’ post to find out.
We asked members of the Autistic community in Ireland to share why they are proud to be Autistic. Al, an architect and widowed father of three, kindly shared his beautifully, brutally honest story.
