Resources

Here is a list of grants, directories, websites, fidgets, essays, and books that I enjoy and consider resourceful. There are many different ways to find help online.

Asking autistic adults is a great way to talk to others who might be or might have been in your situation, or are better apt to understand how to help autistic children. Common places to find like-minded people would be Facebook groups and Twitter tags (#AutDHD, #ActuallyAutistic, #AllAutistics, #AskingAutistics, #OpenlyAutistic, etc.)

Here are other resources I’ve found helpful:
