“People who realise they’re autistic in adulthood often describe a process of ‘reframing’. Past events look different seen through an autism lens. Reconsidering the life I’d already lived was a step along my journey to becoming more autistic. #ActuallyAutistic #identity”
Yes! On reframing:
- Context, Framing, and NAUWU
- Reframing is Self-care and Social Change
- A Change of Frame: From Deficit Ideology to Structural Ideology
- #MyDisabilityMadeMeGoodAt Reframing
And if having these different viewpoints within my study was important, understanding the perspectives and experiences of autistic children and adults in particular was essential. Time and again I found that issues aired say, by teachers, would be completely reframed when the autistic adults discussed the same points.
