Ability: Emerging from the Social Constraints on Neurodivergence and Disability
By: Andrew Coltrin
"Ability" is a call to change the conversation about disability and neurodiversity from the old "medical deficit" language. With a touch of humor, Andrew keeps it real, relevant, and positive!
Andrew Coltrin (AKA Parlty Robot) began making zines in the early 1990s as a creative attempt to work around difficulties with inborn social and communication quirks. In 2011 Andrew stopped being too scared to ask questions about autism. Turns out the answers to some of those questions were yes! Other questions keep coming up, which is why Andrew wrote "Ability" in 2021 as a follow up to the 2017 autism glossary zine "A is for Aspergers." www.partlyrobot.com @
