Here’s what autistic people wish you knew.
I’m Jenna Breunig. I write about autism, Down syndrome, neurodivergence, and disability inclusion.
I grew up in a family where disability was a normal fact of life. But outside my family, things are different. Too many people don’t understand disability. Worse, not all of them accept disabled people. I want that to change.
My sister, Katie, has Down syndrome. Red, who I refer to by a nickname, is autistic. I am also neurodivergent. I believe in creating a better world for all disabled people inside and outside my family.
