Fewer than a third of today’s American undergraduates fit the traditional mold of a full-time student - and it means higher education is more inclusive than in the past, more accessible to all types of people.

Say it with me. “I expect every single teacher, therapist, and support provider on my child’s team to presume competence. If you don’t believe in my child 100%, you don’t deserve to be on the team.”

We have more autistic people at than at any previous conference. Very happy to see that. If we want to build bridges between community and scientists it starts by being in the same place

So to wrap up: autistic people are welcome at INSAR. They may be there as academics, as journalists, as practitioners or as individuals. Their presence at this research meeting is not a threat but an opportunity if we can only embrace* it. *ask permission first.

And if an autistic person at the conference challenges your thinking that’s to be welcomed. Why are we here sharing our work if not to explain it to others? We do this translation across disciplinary boundaries all the time. Why not beyond the academy too?

Dear students everywhere: If you loved a class, tell your professor/teacher. Write a note/e-mail or say it after class. Seriously, sometimes knowing one student really got something out of class makes all the difference. I keep every single one of those notes/emails. They matter.

Asking individuals. What percentage of an advisory board for an organization should be autistic or ? Ideally, all of them, but what percentage feels right if there is a mix of folks?
