The Medical and Social Models of Autism

The Medical and Social Models of Autism

Click on this link for the Program Script and Interview Transcripts for The Medical and Social Models of Autism. In the medical model, Autism is a neurological developmental disorder. In order to receive disability benefits, support services and social supports, Autistics are known by a medical pathology. A pathology that makes us second class citizens. In the social model we have the movement for Neurodiversity. Autistics and other individuals with conditions like ADHD are capturing our diversity as Neurodivergents to work towards a society of equality and equity. Dr. Scott Frasard will talk with me about why the medical and social models are important, and how the Neurodiversity movement is helping Autistics reach for our full potential in life. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/2daysautistic/support
