Accepting Less than Perfect — Day 18 — 30 Days of Autism Acceptance

Today is May 2nd. Autism Acceptance Month, is April. We are no longer in Autism Acceptance Month. I am writing Day 18 of my “30 Days of Autism Acceptance” today. I expect that this will be the last one of the series for this year. So, why is that?  Am I giving up?  Have I […]

Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) — Day 16 — 30 Days of Autism Acceptance

Still having difficulty finding pictures for several of our topics For “yesterday’s post” (which is showing up the same day as this one because I’m still behind, and still working on getting back on track, so no need to schedule) I wrote a bit about language (I think I need to revisit it) but related […]

Language — Day 15 — 30 Days of Autism Acceptance

no image yet again… Today over at Mastodon.art there was a bit of a discussion about language, specifically around the language Toki Pona.  Someone last night posted a bunch of round tiles they created with some kind of “runes” on it, which lead to the discussion as it was just interesting to me. So, the idea […]

Executive Function — Day 9 — 30 Days of Autism Acceptance

I’m not really sure where this is going.  Just like all of them. This morning, I was thinking (don’t really remember when) about how important my understanding of executive function is to my day to day life. Yesterday I had planned on working, and because I had planned to work, it was difficult when I […]

Welcoming Stimming — Day 3 — 30 Days of Autism Acceptance

This is a really new thing for me.  Well, not totally new, because I have been on a low level working on this.  Once I started to really accept that I am autistic, and start to look more at how I do stim, and what works and what does not work I have been working […]

Second Medium Post

A little while ago (I think about a week ago, maybe 2) I decided to “upgrade” my Medium subscription for the purpose that I would not run into the problem of not being able to read everything I wanted, and in the process I decided to update my “interests” or whatever they call them. One […]

Personal Update

I know that this isn’t going to be a heck of a lot of anything, I have been working a bit on the Jigme Datse Site and I think some of that is coming along nicely (some of that will need to be moved over here and that may happen later today).  I keep my “to […]

Thoughts on Sensory Overload

I haven’t been really thinking about this particular post all that long (maybe a couple of hours really).  I have been thinking about the topic broadly for a good while.  So some of this will be “well thought,” while other bits are about some specific things which came up just earlier today. Today’s reasons for […]

Connection – Importance of

Some months ago, I was planning a meeting which I was going to talk about the importance of connection.  Many months ago actually, I think that may have been over a year ago, or at least close to a year ago. Today I met online with the organizer of the Capability Club which is in […]

Partial Review of Tony Attwood’s *The Complete Guide to Asperger’s Syndrome*

I picked up a used copy of this book (actually I believe an earlier edition of it possibly), and had started to read it, but with the combination of the writing, and the fact that after having spent well over a month almost entirely outside, in snow and cold, it still smelt far too much […]
