Q1: Have you ever experienced a violation of privacy, either about your neurodivergence or because someone thought your neurodivergence made it ok? Have you seen someone else’s be violated?

***Please keep others’ privacy in mind when answering! Anonymize, or if that isn’t enough to protect their identity, refrain from sharing.*** #autchat


Q2: Is privacy important to you? Why?

What has happened as a result of privacy violations? What do you worry might happen (for you or others)? #autchat


Q3: Have you ever been in a position where you had to share personal details you’d rather keep private, to be believed about something neurodivergence-related? #autchat


Q4: What can people do to better respect your (and others’) privacy? #autchat
