Ari Daniel Ne’eman (/neɪəˈmɑːn/; born December 10, 1987) is an American disability rights activist who co-founded the Autistic Self Advocacy Network in 2006.[1] On December 16, 2009, President Barack Obama announced that Ne’eman would be appointed to the National Council on Disability.[2] After an anonymous hold was lifted, Ne’eman was unanimously confirmed by the United States Senate to serve on the Council on June 22, 2010.[3] He chaired the Council’s Policy & Program Evaluation Committee. Ne’eman has a diagnosis of Asperger syndrome, which made him the first autistic person to serve on the council.[4] In 2015, Ne’eman left the National Council on Disability at the end of his second term.[5] He currently serves as a consultant to the American Civil Liberties Union.[6] As of 2019, he also is a Ph.D. candidate in Health Policy at Harvard University.[7]
