Review: Autistic Company

Milton, Damian (2013) Review: Autistic Company. Review of: Autistic Company by Hendriks, Ruud. Autonomy, the Critical Journal of Interdisciplinary Autism Studies, 1 (2). pp. 1-2. ISSN 2051-5189. (Full text available)

Abstract

In this book, Ruud Hendriks explores how autistic and non-autistic people navigate a shared existence, and attempts to rethink the language in which such interactions are framed. Interactions of this nature exist, despite as Hendriks suggests of the lack of familiarity in ways in which non-autistic people attune to one another. Hendriks therefore examines the alternative ways that such interactions can emerge, and considers how one can talk about the unusual forms of interaction that take place. In so doing, Hendriks pursues an important line of enquiry within the field of autism studies, in terms of how to build interactions and relationships with neurodiverse populations.
