Inspirational TED Talks on (dis)Ability
Autism: give me a chance and I will change everything | Noah Britton
This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Noah Britton attempts to change the way people look at autism by explaining an oft-ignored core trait. Then he does something previously unseen in any talk. Noah Britton is a psychology professor, performance artist, singer, guitarist, clothing designer, and autistic person. He is perhaps most famous for co-founding Asperger’s Are Us, the first comedy troupe composed entirely of autistic people. He has worked directly with people on the autism spectrum since 2005, as therapeutic mentor, camp counselor, and researcher, and served on the US federal government’s Interagency Autism Coordination Committee.
