I'd like some advice from y'all: I have an aspie friend, I'll call him Elvin, who lives not far from me and doesn't drive (and can't afford a car even if he could drive). I've known him for a few years, and before the pandemic I'd give him, and ...

In 2007 there was a wonderful documentary called "Autism: The Musical". I just found out there is a follow-up called "Autism: The Sequel" which is airing on HBO. I highly recommend both films.

My 6 yo on the spectrum has been noticing things. He's very smart and, while he was originally diagnosed as being at level 2 on the spectrum, is now probably closer to level 1. He's been asking about why he goes to a different School than his ...

Hi, my first post here. Hope it's OK. Does Asperger's / ASD 'inoculate' one against the insanity of Belief and religion? I think it does - 'normal' people are susceptible to Belief (and populist rabble-rousing) as a direct result of their ability to ...
