  1. Autism awareness resources?

    Does anyone know where I can get hold of free resources to teach my Brownie Guides about autism (7-9 Yr olds)? autism.org.uk had a page with resources but now they have gone.

    Understanding one's true nature on the edge of the spectrum

    Hello everybody! Believe it or not, as a 55-years-old with 30 years of experience in the media, I'm new to forums in general !!! So I'm very, very interested by and excited about further exploring what it means to live on the edge of the autism spectrum. I came to realize that I was on the...

    Why is it hard to get people’s attention?

    I know someone said that people in general, simply aren’t interested in talking about Autism; but I’ve been trying to reach out to people and I’m having a real hard time getting anyone to dialogue with me. Does anyone know anyway to provoke a response? I know @Gerontius said telling a story...

    Help writing an Autistic Comic series

    Hi everyone, I need help with something that will help promote Autism Awareness. Remember that Autistic Girl Autumn Campaign? Well, I had too short comics planned, one for October, one for November. But it turns out that the one that I had for this month, I finished too late, and because it...

    What’s it like being open and honest about you Aspergers or Autistic Condition?

    What’s it like being “out” and open about it and having most people in your life aware of it? I’ve mentioned before that I need to be more open about my Aspergers and today, I’ve started to feel the urge to connect more with my brother and sister Catholics who are Aspies or the like.


    My name is Michael Tanzer and I published because I thought it was important to share my story, my voice. I am an adult who has Autism. Many people with autism have a voice, but are not always “heard”. It seems as though others often speak about or of them. “MICHAELISM: My POV on Life with...

    How do I convince my parents to get my brother tested for autism?

    I have a 6 yo brother that is showing some alarming signs of autism. Since his early years he had many problems with his milestones, which my parents glazed over with "oh he's just a lazy baby" never bothering to look further into it. Right now he is very lacking in his speech, it seems like...

    Autism & The Ability to Feel

    (From my official blog, Autistic Spirits) A lot of neurotypicals("normal people") think having autism means you don't have feelings. This is one of the most common stereotypes about autistic people and it's far from the truth. Someone on the spectrum does feel, but he/she expresses it in a...
