#OwnVoices in Disability and Neurodiversity

#OwnVoices is a hashtag/term coined by Corinne Duyvis, co-mod of Disability in Kidlit, for a book featuring a marginalized perspective authored by a person who shares that same marginalized characteristic. God bless solid shorthand.

So, here’s a list of #OwnVoices books featuring disabled and/or neurodiverse main characters, authored by people who possess those same disabilities or disorders. (No one will be added to this list without their express permission unless they are very vocal about a physical disability. If you would like to be removed, please let me know and I will do it ASAP!)
