Woods, R. (2018). Neurodiversity Movement and Rational Demand Avoidance: The clash of 2 competing biopower technologies in action. PARC Critical Autism Studies Conference 2018.

This is a presentation I delivered at Participatory Autism Research Collective Critical Autism Studies Conference 2018. It builds on the work of Damian Milton (2013) exploring how Rational Demand Avoidance can be explained as a biopower, available at the link below: https://kar.kent.ac.uk/62694/ While reflecting on this I realised that the similar processes are also applicable to the Neurodiversity Movement. This is a slightly updated version, with more references and further proof reading. I particularly changed 2 of the Rational Demand Avoidance stereotypes to be reflective of wider literature. Please do contact me if you have questions regarding the content.
