I created this account in the hopes of changing the discourse on autism to something more accepting and inclusive. I am autistic.
I also work on the Autism Spectrum category at wikiHow, and I have written writing tutorials at deviantART.
My special interests are autism, writing, and drawing. My favorite stims are pacing, playing with my stim toys, and happy dancing.
I am autistic. I was diagnosed at age 18 after a massive autistic burnout. It's very hard sometimes, but I do my best! I am lucky to have a very supportive family and friends at my college's disability center.
I hope to promote autism acceptance, so that all autistic people can be welcomed and supported. I am involved in several projects at my school and wikiHow related to disability and community.
I draw lots of pictures of autistic and other disabled people. I hope that this will normalize autism and disability, so that disabled people will feel less alone, and non-disabled people will see us as people a lot like them.
I have read a lot about autism. Feel free to contact me if you would like to ask me any questions!
