Comments: I am very excited about this Autistic Adults Picture Project because I believe showing the world who we are in all our individuality will erode old outdated and damaging stereotypes. We really are a community of unique people, with our own autistic way of thinking, feeling, living, and loving. By sharing our lives, we also give other autistic people the positive message that they too can reach their potential and achieve their dreams. It's fun to see people here I know and don't know. I could write so much more! But I'll keep it brief and just invite you to check out my website.
