Interview with Dr Katie Twomey from the University of Manchester
Lucy Porte, our Autism@Manchester summer intern, interviewed Dr Katie Twomey, a Lecturer in Language and Communicative Development based at The University of Manchester.
Together they have an entertaining and informative conversation touching upon Katie’s research, misunderstandings around autism, autistic people in the workplace and what an autistic world would look like.
Some quotes that Lucy particularly liked were:
- “I wouldn’t de-autism myself”;
- “A constellation of difference”;
- “I want society to value the autistic brain”.
