I created this blog as an alternative to attempting to publish an amateur autobiography that is most likely unpublishable. I had done so much work and research on it that this seemed the best way to share what I’d learned so that it wouldn’t go to waste.

I have read over 50 books on autism and over 100s of journal articles on autism (from peer-reviewed journals). I am a stay-at-home mum with autism who has two sons with autism and a special interest in autism. You can expect to read a lot about autism in this blog.

Autism is so complex that a surface look at it does not do it justice. To me autism is difference. To some people difference is annoying or frightening. To me difference is an opportunity. It is not easy being different because the environment and expectations are designed for those who fit within the majority, which is why people who are different need additional support. But difference also offers advantages; unique creative advantages to society. We are here because evolution designed it that way.

In summary, I am passionate about improving the knowledge, understanding, support and appreciation of people with autism and I am using this blog as a cheap and easy way to do that.

FYI: I do not endorse any advertisements that appear on my blog site as a result of not paying the annual fee to get rid of them.

Thanks for taking the time to read this and have a nice day 🙂
