Neurodelicious launchpad: Pioneering a new type of entertainment accessible to all!

I haven’t blogged for a while because I have been really busy rehearsing for my part in Neurodelicious Launch Pad.

Writing my book, The Camera Obscure:Story 6 A Gallery of Tigers.

This story is a really strange one, but one I am proud of. It is a magical realist story, but it is really about abuse.

My sense of self is disappearing as the face reflected back seems unfamiliar, as if there are two of us, the one here outside the mirror and the one on the otherContinue reading “Writing The Camera Obscure- Story 3 ‘Reflection’”

Deeply offensive, abelist article

I just read this – and honestly, I don’t know whether to laugh at the ignorance, or simply despair. Would we force the blind to see, or the day to hear to fit in with this narrow little world? This article is suggesting that if we train autistic kids to behave like ‘normal’ people thenContinue reading “Deeply offensive, abelist article”
