Here you’ll find a collection of resources about autism I have found to be interesting, helpful, or potentially useful. If you’re curious about what has helped me, what I read, you want to learn more, or you’re autistic yourself and want to explore useful resources, or any number of other reasons, you may want to check out this page. This page is updated continuously as I discover new things, so check back from time to time for more!
