Neurodiversity – the key that unlocked my world | Elisabeth

What do you think about, when you hear the word, “autism”? No diagnostic manual can truly explain the multifaceted experience of autism. It’s a neurological difference with a vast spectrum of representation within its population. It can come with remarkable gifts and skills as well as devastating traits. Autism does not necessarily equal disability and thankfully today, we have a word, that challenges this negative terminology. Neurodiversity. In her talk, Elisabeth communicates how it is to be autistic yet lead an independent and successful everyday life.

Born and raised in a log cabin in the middle of nowhere in Sweden, Elisabeth Wiklander moved to Amsterdam to study and work before she acquired a highly competitive position at the London Philharmonic Orchestra. She is no stranger to trying new things and reaching for her dreams. Besides being passionate about nature, rock climbing and playing cello, Elisabeth is autistic and was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome when she was 28 years old. Until then, she had no explanations for her sometimes different thoughts and behaviour.

Embrace the potential of Autism | Lars Johansson-Kjellerød | TEDxArendal

Social entrepreneurship and social innovation are in demand and essential to make the world spin around more smoothly. They extend and strengthen civil society. Lars has changed what traditional policy has been able to do by creating profitable businesses in new and ingenious ways. In his talk from TEDxArendal - he tells you about his company that mainly hires people with Asperger syndrome.

As a former broker manager Lars got bored with the financial sector and started his own IT company where he employs only people with Asperger syndrome or autism. Where few leaders dare to hire outside the norm, Lars Johansson-Kjellerød has made it his business idea.

Young, Gifted & Black With Autism | LaChan Hannon | TEDxCooperRiverWomen

Raising a young, gifted and black young man with autism comes with its own set , rules, rewards and expectations. Being an educator and a parent of a child with autism comes with its own set of questions that not just parents should ask but that the Education System should ask.
LaChan Hannon ask the question: How does race influence how we see autism and the perception we have about our young, gifted and black children around the world?

LaChan is mother of two, Nile (13) and Avery (12). Shortly after Avery’s autism diagnosis at 21 months, LaChan and her husband Dr. Michael D. Hannon co­founded the 501c3 non­profit organization Greater Expectations Teaching and Advocacy Center Inc (GETAC), where she serves as Director, as a means to support families with children with developmental differences in addition to education professionals
through parent workshops, professional development, and advocacy support. She presents at both local and national conferences on topics of autism education, culturally responsive teaching, and teacher practice. LaChan is an advocate for equitable access to quality education, a supporter of teacher learning, and a believer that schools improve when parents are deliberately included in the education of their children. LaChan has BA in English/Sociolology and received special education graduate certificates in Educating Individuals with Autism and Applied Behavior Analysis.
