Welcome to the Autistic Community!
Hi there! My name is Liese, and this is a new blog aimed at being a safe place for people who are new to the autistic community to ask questions and explore, without having to be afraid of being wrong, or of being yelled at for not knowing things. Of course, older members of the community who are willing to be patient with those still learning are also welcome!
The blog is still a work in progress, so please bear with me! I am working on a resource page that will cover common topics such as Person First Language vs. Identity First Language, stimming, sensory processing, and other such topics.
The ask and submit are open, so feel free to ask or submit anything! If you have any feedback on the accessibility of the theme, please let me know. I have tried to pick a theme that is easy to read and navigate, but let me know if it’s causing you problems.
And since I am sure people will ask: Yes, you can follow us if you’re not autistic! I am not going to be checking people’s blogs. All I ask is that you respect the purpose of the blog.
I think that’s all! I look forward to trying to help and support the newcomers to our community!
You can find my personal blog here, too.
Thank you for reading!
