    A great deal of this probably comes from the inundation with Autism Awareness that's out there already.
    All I can say is good luck. Not everyone has "time" (or thinks he does) so maybe if you can also promote autistics themselves as a force for positivty, so much the better.

    How do I “promote Autistic people themselves?”

    I’m discerning whether or not to start an Autism-themed Rosary Novena for the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary in October; I’ll DM you if I decide to go ahead with it and invite you to join.

    Sounds cool
    As for promoting autistic people--I dn't know; haven't thought it through. But we need to be seen as more than helpless, that's for sure. Lots f people don't even want to remember we exist, seems like. I get "but you don't look autistic" a lot--It's like in the public mind, we have Schroedinger's Autistic. Blends in but looks distinctive, is helpless with the burden of genius, etc.

    I see, I actually plan on commissioning two comics after my first Autistic Girl Autumn Commision; from the same artist. That might help in getting the message across.
