Dear Autistic Community & Allies: John Donvan & Caren Zucker, authors of the book “In a Different Key” – a book that promotes anti-autistic bigotry and abuse of autistic children, and deliberately smears and misrepresents the neurodiversity movement – are making a documentary film which they claim is “about the neurodiversity movement.”
Obviously, this is going to be another anti-autistic, anti-neurodiversity hit piece. If you’re pro-neurodiversity and you allow them to interview you for this film, you can bet the footage will be edited and presented in a way that misrepresents you and makes you look bad, just like they did to Ari Ne’eman and others in their book.
Best thing would probably be if all of us just completely refused to talk to them or be filmed by them.
Please share this information freely in the community – there are plenty of people in the neurodiversity movement with whom I don’t personally get along and with whom I’m not in direct contact, but who still need this information because they still deserve better than to be tricked into appearing in a film that will ultimately be used to undermine their work. – Nick Walker
