An exploration into ‘autspace’

Milton, Damian (2013) An exploration into ‘autspace’. Talk about autism, London, UK. (KAR id:62696)


In this article, I will be exploring the notion of ‘autspace’, which to me can be distinguished from ‘autism-friendly space’ as often remarked upon elsewhere, and obviously from ‘autistic-unfriendly space’. I was originally going to write this article as a review of the Autscape conference held in August 2013, an event led by, and for, autistic people. I was asked a puzzling question however by the manager of this site, as he asked what other autism related organisations could learn from such an event. My initial response was to suggest having more autistic involvement in the running of organisations, as it was not possible to emulate ‘autspace’ without such participation.
