Personal webpage url:
Read about autism and AS in 2003
Thousands upon thousands of words in books and online
Found that they fitted me just fine
So on the spectrum is where I am - free to be me.

Autism not a disease to cure or treat
Rather a difference to celebrate - just really neat
So proclaim it loud and proclaim it clear
We are autistics and we are here.

Thank you.
Best wishes
