Autism / Neurodiversity Manifesto Launch at the Labour Party Conference 28th September 2016

Please look at our first draft of the Manifesto, being launched on Wednesday, 28th September, 2016 in Liverpool.

Comments and attendance at the launch all very much appreciated…

John McDonnell has been working with us, a small Steering Committee, to develop a manifesto which can be launched and then rolled-out to all the grassroots membership across the country, to give their opinions, inform through their own experiences and ideas, to produce a final draft which will be put to the Party with the hopeful aim of adoption as official LP policy.

Why Neurodiverse rather than Neurodivergent? Tempting though it certainly was, Neurodivergence is about ‘us’ rather than everyone embraced by the term ‘Neurodiverse’: we are all neurodiverse, we all think and see the world slightly differently.

Completely based on the social model, we strive to ensure that we all have a l’evel playing-field’ to enable everyone to reach their full potential, to study and work together and to build on everyone’s strengths: unique set of skills, knowledge, ideas, interests and make full contributions to society.

Difference is key.

‘Nothing about us without us’
