No Stereotypes Here

Autistic Speaking Out Loud!

Posted on: November 1, 2010

I’ve been thinking about what to post here for today, shifting through all my memories and experiences.  To be honest, I’m pretty sure I could write a book covering it all.  But the problem is always where to start.

I’ve had my share of troubles through life, and I still do and will have troubles.  But I won’t dwell on them or indulge in self-pity.  Life is full of difficulties, and we all have our own specific difficulties. 

So instead of concentrating on negative aspects, I choose to focus on my strengths and skills.  One of these strengths is writing, and expressing myself through writing.  Since 2009, I have been writing on this blog about Autism, and so for Autistics Speaking Day, I am listing some of the posts that I feel are some of my best work.

If people participating in Autistics Speaking Day would like to comment with their contributing blog posts or other forms of communication, please do so.  I would love to see your words. 

Explaining Asperger’s as Autistic

On Neurodiversity

Regarding Success

Self Advocacy and Disability

Blogging as Communication

The Propsed DSM-V Changes: Is it a Step in the Right Direction?

What I Want People To Know

I can’t say this enough; thank you all very much for your support and participation.  By sheer response, this day has been successful beyond measure, and it is all due to your hard work and contributions. 

Thank you, thank you, thank you all. 

And here’s to raising Autism Awareness and working towards a better future for all.
