Autism strongly effects my gender identity, so my gender identity is Autistic. I am Autigender. Don't...

    Autistic Communication

    [This was posted recently on Facebook by a Scottish Autism group] If you or a loved one has gone through an autism assessment in the last few decades, you may have come across the dreaded ‘triad of impairments’. This is from a very deficit-based assessment model, thankfully not used anymore...

    Up until last year, I thought people treated me poorly because I was different. I blamed them for making me feel worse. I tried hard to act normal but I wasn't perfect and still got criticized. Since I couldn't change how people treated me, I thought there was nothing I could do about it. The...

    MBTI (Meyers Briggs Personality)

    I kind of have this hypothesis going that auties are most likely to come up as INT- or INF- on a Meyers-Briggs assessment... I thought it might be kind of fun to find out if there's any truth to that! So, if you don't already know your MBTI personality type, you can take a free quiz on it...
