Events coming up

Neurodiversity Dialogues: Neurodiversity in Media (open to all)

  • Monthly series, next session will be on Wednesday, September 20th, 3:00-4:00 pm.
  • Facilitated by: Em McClintock, MHC-LP (CAPS & Neurodiversity @ Cornell)
  • In this session, we’ll discuss how different neurodivergent identities are represented in film and TV shows. We’ll discuss if we think these portrayals are good, bad, or a mix of both. We’ll consider why these depictions matter and how they’ve impacted understandings of ourselves and others as neurodivergent.
