NEURODIVERGENCE REPRESENTATION: Why it’s so important to get it right
Most people have heard of autism and probably neurodiversity, and neurodivergent representation in literature is slowly on the rise. But is it the right representation? Diagnosed autistic as an adult, Kate has spent years learning what it really means to be autistic, beyond the stereotypes, and in turn, realising exactly how little and insensitively autistic characters are often portrayed in books. Sharing personal experiences, Kate talks honestly and openly, offering insight into her life, her work, and her hopes for how authors and publishers handle neurodivergent representation in the future.
