I’m a big fan of Erin Human’s blog about living a neurodiverse life. I’ve gotten a lot out of reading her thoughtful entries. (you can find her blog HERE) Below is a graphic she has created and shared, as an illustrative ‘way in’ to talking to children about their autism. I think it’s a lovely visual depiction of diversity – in the natural world; in people; in brains.

In a sense, her drawing is an extension of one of my favorite vintage children’s books, PEOPLE, by Peter Spier. He drew a giant catalog of noses, mouths, ears, eyes, skin tones, dress styles, hands, fingers – you name it – all to visually represent that we’re all, all of us, just millions of variations on the human theme. There is no one particular “right” way to be.
