Hi folks. Just checking in. Hope all is well. For those putting a tree up and decorating during the holiday season, does your neurodiversity (or someone you care for's neurodiversity) dictate how decorations are assembled?

Anyone else have hyperthymesia? According to one website it is a God gifted trait that can not be achieved through medical assistance or by doing something. Hyperthymesia is just a very strong autobiographical memory, it is NOT eidetic or ...

Hello all, I'm a new member. I was diagnosed with asd at the age of 48. Everything made a lot more sense after the diagnosis. A life of weirdness became a life on the autism spectrum. At 52 now, I am much more at peace with myself, and much less ...

OK guys, just chasing a little feedback for this one. I am an aspi, even though the term has lost currency now. A couple of days ago I ran into a friend who said many times during the conversation that she was neurotypical. She said her partner ...

My nephew is high functioning autistic. One friend is Asperger's. My "second mom's" grandson is Asperger's. And, another friend is higher functioning autism than my nephew.

I have chromatic Synesthesia. It's pretty cool, and I've had it all my life. I'm looking for books (novels) that include characters with Synesthesia. Any that you know of?

Do you think it is harder to come out as nonreligious or on the spectrum or are they equally as difficult because of how much stigma they both have?

As a father with a 39 year old daughter with what we now know as Asperger's I feel like I had a ringside seat to the lack of understanding back in the 80's to disorders such as this. She was bullied, teased and made fun of. It broke my heart. Today ...
