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…
So 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!!!
