Australia

I am an Autistic women. I have two Autistic sons and a neurotypical husband.

I have a special interest in disability and am well- read (journals, books and blogs) on autism specifically, as well as having the insight of my own lived experience of being Autistic.

After connecting with other disabled people on social media, my ideas and blog focus have evolved. I expect this evolution of thought to continue.

Earlier posts may contain person-first language, functioning language and euphemisms for disability due to internalised ableism.

I no longer try to prove our value or give advice (unless it involves being less ableist). We exist and that is all that matters. We deserve justice because we exist.
