Most autistics have a strong preference for how they like to absorb new information.
I love to read books. Ironically, I don’t like to read one-off essays. I want to deep dive into topics. It’s why my favorite resources on autism are the books “Divergent Mind” and “What I Mean When I Say I’m Autistic.”
Other autistics I know strongly prefer long-form videos, while others like short bursts of information on Tik Tok. Others love listening to podcasts.
Given that people like to learn in multiple ways, I’ve tried to provide autism resources in multiple formats: conference talks, essays, podcasts, and YouTube shows.
Here are some key topics about late identified autism that I have available in multiple formats:
