Well yes, but they also aren't counting people who just didn't sign up for the services because they didn't want them.

Good to know the experts are finally catching up to what we've known for years.

So I'm doing research on employment among autistic adults, and I found that this report is used as the source for a claim that employment among autistic adults is very low: https://drexel.edu/autismoutcomes/publications-and-reports/publications/National-Autism-Indicators-Report-Developmental-Disabil...

I think you should go, but I do have a few things to say. First, I do think there is significantly more autistic women than the world thinks there is, they just get different labels slapped onto them.

I've come to find that most my social difficulties come not from direct symptoms of autism, but from social anxiety. My anxiety is like a gate - when it's closed, it acts as a wall, but once someone opens the door I pass right through. I'm probably very socially awkward, but from experience I've tha...

None of the above. She's what's called a chromopula, though I guess it's not entirely wrong to say she's an alien or a mutant.

I'm working on a novel where the main character is an autistic octopus girl. I've finished the first draft for the first part. I'm wondering if anyone is interested in being a pre-reader. That is all.

If OP would like, I'll cr...
