About this work


Autistic people speak out because there is nothing wrong with us. We are complete, complex, human beings leading rich and meaningful existences and deserving dignity, respect, human rights, and the primary voice in the conversation about us. This anthology, and the Loud Hands Project as a whole, serves to document and explore that.


Washington, DC : The Autistic Press, 2012.
