About Lauren Melissa

Lauren Melissa Ellzey (she/her), @Autienelle, is an autistic self-advocate, educator, author, and social justice activist. Through writing and presenting, she engages across lines of difference, highlighting the inequitable systems that oppress queer, BIPOC, and disabled folks. Her work as Autienelle has crossed paths with the United Nations, Penn State, PINE Program (NYU), Reframing Autism, Out 4 Undergrad, Pima County Health Department, NeuroClastic, Cripple Media, AbleZine, Inclusion Festival, the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, and more. As an Instructional Support Specialist, she provides consultation and professional development on autistic K-12 inclusion. Her debut young adult novel, Boy at the Window, emphasizes the importance of belonging for queer, neurodivergent youth of color. In all, she hopes to co-create a society where autistics nurture autistics as we strive toward true inclusion.
