How to celebrate Autism Awareness and Acceptance Month, plus information on what Autism is and what we experience!
“Autistics are making content about our lives and experiences because our input has been ignored in studies. It’s always been about what others think of us, how they want us to be different.

We don’t need awareness, as if it’s a disease. We need understanding, acceptance, and celebration of our differences!
