Blog:The Silent Wave- 'How are you?' is a loaded question

On any given day, I can be ecstatic.   Or caught in the clutches of insatiable curiosity.  Or I feel the weight of exhaustion.  I might only want to tuck myself away from the world with the building of a virtual cocoon.  I can feel hyposocial, where people are OK, but my day would not be incomplete if I never uttered a word to a single soul all day.  Or maybe I’m dealing with pain,

Anonymous asked: hi!! im sorry this is kind of a stupid question, but do you consider people with AD(H)D neurotypical?

Hi anon-friend. Your question is not stupid at all.

People with AD(H)D are not neurotypical.

It is possible to be allistic (non-autistic) and neurodivergent in another way, like by being AD(H)D, having a mental illness, etc.

So a non-autistic person with AD(H)D is indeed neurodivergent, or neuro-atypical, or non-neurotypical. Pick your favorite term 🙂

Anonymous asked: People I’ve met don’t think it’s possible to have autism and to be gay. How can I tell them that they’re wrong?

Friend, I have absolutely no clue. My instinct tells me this is less of an issue of convincing this person, and more that this person has a lot of gross bigoted feelings that they choose to follow at the expense of truth or logic. It’s very common. Humans are weird.

I’m sorry

Latimes.com: Teen athletes and parents in 'Swim Team' form a spirited community in the face of autism

The sheer number of autism documentaries has provided one key overall benefit in understanding those on the spectrum: they’re not monolithic. The breaststroking, freestyling young athletes in “Swim Team” couldn’t be more different in terms of personality, drive, appeal and, of course, developmental challenges, and it gives this film

I am always quite fascinated at how people in real life perceive me. When I hear how they feel about me I automatically assess whether I hold that same view. I internalise it and analyse it. So here are a few perceptions that others have of me ….and what I think. 

1. That I am Jolly

Yes that was the word used to describe me. It’s not a word you hear much unless you’re a

It’s not because they’re anti-social or rude. A new study unlocks a mystery in how autism affects people’s brains.

Not everyone likes to be touched. But for people with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), this is more than a simple preference; according to a new study, it’s more likely the result
