jemma autism checklist
someone: jemma’s not autistic
me: *pulls receipts*
okay here we go! here is a very detailed post explaining why jem is totes autistic
to sum, she shows a lot of traits of atypical autism (which is more often how autism manifests in girls) and displays a lot of traits necessary for a diagnosis. she is awkward and blunt in her social interaction (needing to be reminded at times how to act “appropriately”), has a deep passion for her specific interests, is literal minded, stims, was probably hyperlexic, has trouble lying and improvising language, and shows signs of alexithymia
