Always be specific when asking an autistic person a question.

Because their answer will be.

An example:

Father — to son in passenger seat.

“Look in the blind spot and see if there are any cars there.”




This Publication is for all who are Autistic and for those of our kind. It is for the Neurodivergent, for those on the Spectrum of all Gender Identities, the LGBTQ*, and all others who are justifiably non-conformant to Society’s harmful marginalization and Ableist views of us.
