Hi! My name is Robyn. I am 29, I got my diagnosis at age 26. And ever since then I have been researching autism, learning from other Autistics almost constantly, and have immersed myself in the Autistic community. I already did a more extensive introduction here and you can also peruse my about page.
Being Autism Acceptance Month, I will be blogging throughout April on various related topics as well as sharing stories and photos from my past. And of course I will be wearing RED, even though my favorite color is
blue, over the past year my favorite color has become purple. Blue is a no-go in April. For more information on why blue is bad, please check out this link.
If you have any specific questions about Autism for me, feel free to comment or send an email with them! I would love to help others learn more.
Also I have tons of Autism/Neurodiversity related buttons and pins for sale in my shop. 40% of each sale will be donated to ASAN at the end of this month. I will also be making various #RedInstead themed plush OOAK plush throughout the month.
Check back tomorrow for another Autism Acceptance Month post!
I went to see Steve Silberman for the 2nd time tonight. I first saw him speak about his book Neurotribes in 2016. Nothing I didn’t already know since I have read his book, but I will always do my best to attend any event he speaks at if its close enough to me. As he is a wonderful ally to Autistics.
Steve asked for a photo with me and my husband. I also gifted him some of my buttons and pins. He wanted to show off my Peace, Love, & Neurodiversity button in the photo.
