Kermit the Frog on Neurodiversity and Being Green

Hi ho, Kermit the Frog here.

Today I won’t tell you a little bit about Neurodiversity, and different kinds of brains, and Autistic people.
Autistic people want to be a part of the conversation.
They want to be included!
But Autistic people don’t need me to talk for them…

imagesSo instead… today I’d like to tell you a little bit about the colour green.

Do you know what’s green?
Well… I am, for one thing.
You see some frogs are green, and I’m a frog.

And I happen to be the kind of frog that is green.

And that means that I’m green….

You see how that works…

And that also means I can talk about what it is like to be green – because I am a green frog and I can speak for myself…

You can hear me sing an wonderful song about being green here. Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!!!
