My name is Lydia Brown (Left).
I am an Autistic and multiply-disabled activist, scholar, and writer. I regularly speak at conferences and universities on a variety of topics related to disability justice, disability and asexuality, violence against disabled people, and autistic cultural identity.
Lynne Soraya learned early the impact of expectations and the reality of the diversity of the human experience. A child with an unusual profile of skills and abilities, she was blessed with excellent teachers who saw through her differences and struggles to the ability beneath. It was only in adulthood, after years of difficulties and confusion, that she learned that her differences had a name: Asperger?s Syndrome, a form of autism.
Woman with Asperger's
Who am I? I am a multiracial (African-American, European, and American Indian) woman diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome in 2010. Come walk on my journey with me through this blog, in which I will try to make sense of what this all means.
