Note For Anyone Writing About Me

For anyone who wants to write about me
I am an Autistic person. I am not a person with autism. Don't call me one. FYI, also not Aspergers. The diagnosis isn't even in the DSM anymore anyways.
My name is Alyssa, I'm a triple major in mathematics, mechanical engineering, and Chinese. I'm currently studying abroad in Tianjin. I have an About. I'm Autistic. I don't like Autism Speaks. I'm Disabled, not differently abled, and I am an Autistic activist. Self-advocate is true, but incomplete.

Autism/Neurodiversity Stuff

This is a pile of autism or neurodiversity related stuff I recommend that is not on the ``Stuff I Read" for whatever reason, probably because it isn't a blog. Not everything is current, and not everything is perfect. Sometimes it is a specific article I recommend from a blog I read.
Don't Mourn For Us
Autistic Self Advocacy Network
The Unbroken Spectrum: Stockholm Syndrome
Asperger's Are Us comedy troupe plays off their disability
Changing The Autism Conversation
The Obsessive Joy Of Autism-Just Stimming
Quiet Hands- Just Stimming
Letters From Aspergia E-book
A pile of reaction gifs that say either "allistic people" or "autism speaks" for those times when you want a reaction gif.
Neurotypical: The Movie
A Neurodivergent Affirmation
ADHD as a difference in cognition rather than a disorder: TED Talk
The ABC of Stimming

  1. Ah! Thank you for giving me a shout-out and linking to my affirmation!


I reserve the right to delete for personal attacks, derailing, dangerous comparisons, bigotry, and generally not wanting my blog to be a platform for certain things. As long as we stay within those ranges, discussion is AWESOME.
