Autistic Professor is a proudly autistic author, academic, advocate and mother - sharing her views and learning experiences as a woman on the spectrum

On this website I share my journey of (self) discovery - what I have learnt, and am learning, about myself, about autism, and about being an autistic woman in a neurotypical world. I also share articles that I have written, as well as articles and resources that I have found helpful. With the help of Alex, I post some ‘explainers’ about how autism impacts the way I see, hear and feel the world.

This is our story. Some of it may resonate with you, and some of it may not - autism is a spectrum and everyone’s experience is unique.
