Crafting new narratives of autism through knitting.

Much of our current knowledge about what it means to be autistic is harmful and dehumanizing. Autism has been described as an epidemic, as a kidnapper stealing our children, even as a fate worse than death. Not only are these descriptions harmful, they keep us from listening to autistic people. This project works to change that by focusing on things that matter to autistic people. Stories of autistic adults' interests and passions show how they craft their own stories about being autistic.
