True Biz (BOOK CLUB #07)

By Sara Novic

In this episode of The Autistic Culture Book Club:

Autistic podcast hosts, Dr. Angela Lauria and Matt Lowry, LPP, discuss “True Biz” by Deaf author, Sara Novic. Topics include:

  • ASL (American Sign Language), BASL (Black ASL), and Deaf culture.

  • “Big-D Deaf” vs “little-d deaf.”

  • The parallels between Deaf culture and Autistic culture. Including: “therapies” that are meant to disguise disability rather than embrace it.

  • The symptoms of ableism that society thinks are “symptoms” of disabilities.

  • Eugenics. What it means to be part of a culture that doctors are trying to eradicate through gene manipulation.
