Pretend it’s magic: 3 lessons to learn from neuroatypical brains | Nariman Gathers | TEDxStanford

What if everything you were taught to believe about neuroatypical brains was wrong? People with neurological disorders, including autism spectrum disorder, are often perceived as taxes on society, receiving charitable care and adding little in return. But what if these people could actually teach us a thing or two about how to do neurotypical life better? What if they could teach us how to do a little magic? Nariman Gathers is neuroatypical. They map their diagnosis closest to that of Autism Spectrum Disorder, and sometimes they even see sounds. They spend their time as a designer turning everyday neuroatypical strategies into steps that help neurotypical folks do community better. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
