Neurodiversity is the natural variation of human minds. LAST believes all minds are valuable and every person has something to offer.
We are stronger together than we are alone. LAST members come from different backgrounds, but one thing we have in common is our commitment to supporting each other.
It’s not enough to be aware of Autism. LAST is working to foster acceptance and inclusion of Autistic people in society.
LAST believes that Autistic people should be in control of our own advocacy organizations. We support the autonomy of all members of our community in making our own decisions on things that affect our lives.
Intersectionality means that different people have different aspects to their identity, for example people’s gender, sexuality, race, ability, and so forth, are all part of who they are.
LAST strives to be aware of these different experiences, and we listen to Autistic people when they tell us how other aspects of their identity impact their experiences of being Autistic.
