My name is Emma and in October 2016, just a few weeks before my 16th birthday, I received the diagnosis of Autistic Spectrum Disorder, along with Generalised and Social Anxiety Disorders. This diagnosis is wonderful to me, making sense of world that’s been confusing since birth.
As a result, I started this blog where I share information about my life as an autistic person, celebrating who I am and what it means to be me. This included reflections on times pre-diagnosis where I recognise autistic behaviours and my “A Guide To:” series of longer posts, giving information on specific autism topics, along with links to other people who’ve said it before.
Feel free to comment on my posts or email on my blog email, firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
