Learn about autism from autistic people.

Autistic people know the most about autism, since we know what it is like to be autistic. Non-autistic people will never know what it is like to be autistic, so they should learn about autism by talking to us. Ask autistic people first when you have questions about autism.

Here are some places where autistic people talk about autism:

  • The Autistic Self Advocacy Network
  • The Autistic Women and Nonbinary Network
  • The Thinking Person’s Guide to Autism
  • #AskingAutistics on social media. People add #AskingAutistics to their posts to ask autistic people questions.
