The Invisibility of Black Autism — Discover

More from my news feed. I’ve written openly about the invisibility of Autism in females, but women and girls are not the only Aspies being missed.

Steve Silberman, the author of NeuroTribes: The Legacy of Autism and the Future of Neurodiversity, explores the challenges faced by autistic people of color in gaining access to proper health care.

    1. I guess that depends on who you ask. Personally I don’t think Autism is a good or a bad thing. Like someone’s skin color is not a good thing or a bad thing, it’s just the way someone’s genetic makeup manifests itself. I personally would not want to be rid of my Autism, since it is a big part of my personality and also enhances the things that I am good at.

  1. Great post! I have an Autistic brother who is half Asian, and half European. I also have to clients (both young white males) who I take to therapy that helps them learn how to respond/interact with their peers. I can honestly say that the majority of children there are white males. There was one Hispanic male, and only three white females. I am saddened by the thought of all the others out there who may be undiagnosed because of race/economical reasons. Thank you for sharing. G-uno
