Hi there! I’m Michelle and welcome to Fabulously Autistic! Now you may have a couple of questions:
What is Autism?
Autism is a developmental disability and a neurotype, a type of brain. It affects 1 in 100 of us and makes us perceive the world differently than non-autistics. It’s characterised by impairments in social interaction and communication and restricted and repetitive behaviours.
Autism is a life long condition- you don’t grow out of it, you just learn to handle it better.
Autism affects every part of you. The way you think, the way you act, the things you like. Still, every autistic person is different and we have different needs and interests.
So what’s this website about?
This is a website all about autism! It’s a resource for autistics and non-autistics alike to learn more about autism and to provide help and advice when I can. I used to host this blog on blogger, but decided to switch to WordPress because I find it easier to move and to widen my audience.
So who are you?
My name is Michelle and I am autistic (as you’ve probably guessed).
My Special Interests are manga and anime, The Sims 4, Animal Crossing, and autism and I am very fond of math (I’m one of those weirdos who do maths for fun, heheh) and computers.
Who is this website for?
While I’d like to focus on autistic adults due to the lack of resources for us, this website is for virtually anyone who wants to know about autism from an autistic! It can be for autistic to learn more about their autism. It can be for non-autistic people to learn the facts. Parents of autistic children, I urge you to pay a visit too!
