    Snapping fingers

    I have never been able to snap my fingers, ever since I was a kid and we were asked to snap to some songs. It seemed like I was the only one who just couldn't do it, and I still can't no matter how much I try. I have a standard body and fitness level, so in theory, nothing should stand in the...

    Women and girls with autism may face greater challenges with day-to-day tasks, study finds

    This article was brought to my attention by the lovely staff at a non-profit I interact with, and I thought some of you might find it interesting. It links to a longer study; I would have liked some practical examples of their findings, but perfection doesn't exist... You can find the source...

    The anti-résumé: name a weird task or skill your ASD could grant you

    I came across a "pointless data broker" in a post (courtesy of @Full Steam), and that's inspired me to write a crazy résumé (or CV for our non-US based friends), in the vein of things I would write if I were brutally honest about my quirkiest abilities. My lifetime experience as an Aspie makes...

    Career quizzes: Suggestions? Reviews?

    I have taken my fair share of career and strengths quizzes over the last 6 years or so, whether in school or in the context of job interviews, and I'm sure many others here have done that too. I was thinking perhaps we could try to compile a selection for those of us who need a little...
