Some ASD Youtubers I have enjoyed watching

I have been trying to learn all useful and encouraging information from others with ASD, and the great thing about youtube videos is that I can listen to them while doing other tasks. Helps me get through chores while I get to learn about what I need to know, or at least keeps me company. I'm linking some I have enjoyed below, but there are plenty of others if you search. I hope that some of these will be helpful for you. Since I am female, these are mostly female, but I'll point out the males :) FYI some of these channels have useful playlists, for others you'll have to search for specific series or just explore what's there.

  1. Autism Hangout's "Ask Dr. Tony" series
    - Dr. Tony is male, but he doesn't have ASD. He is one of those rare NT therapists who truly listens to and gets what people with ASD are going through. I find his videos and the books he has written/edited very helpful. The link to the videos is below.

  2. Amythest Schaber's "Ask an Autistic" series
    - Amythest Schaber
  3. The Girl with the Curly Hair Channel
    - the girl with the curly hair
  4. Maranda's Toys & Books: "Asperger's Syndrome Vlog" series
    - You'll need to search for the "Asperger's Syndrome Vlog"
    - Maranda's Toys & Books
  5. Aspergers from the Inside Channel
    - This is an adult male, if you'd like to see a male perspective :)
    - Aspergers from the Inside
  6. Sarah Hendrickx Channel
    - This is an NT woman who is in a relationship with an ASD male, I think. Her videos on autism and relationships and employment are interesting. I'm reading one of her books right now and it is also helpful.
    - Sarah Hendrickx
  7. Hannah Riedel Channel
    - I just found her nice to listen to. I especially related to her video about burnout.
    - Hannah Riedel
As I mentioned above, there are many other worthwhile videos to watch/listen to. If you have any favorites, please feel free to include links to them in the comments section below :) I'll make a separate post about the ASD books I have found most helpful later.

Thank you for sharing your recommendations! :)
I am familiar with some of the YouTubers you mentioned, but not all of them, so there's some more for me to discover now.
