Upcoming in April (but working on now) 30 Days of Autism Acceptance

Last year I did a 30 Days of Autism Acceptance project during April, and I got part way through.  Earlier this month (I think yesterday) I got reminded, and it appears that I have some place to start. The reminder I got, was pointing to my second “Executive Function” which was created because someone reacted to […]

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.

Connecting with Other Autistics — Day 14 — 30 Days of Autism Acceptance — 2018 Autism Acceptance Month

I like to put a header image, but I don’t know that I have one that really fits here either…  That’s OK for now… I have this listed in my notes as “CAU” or Canadian Autistics United.  But that is just a “formal” aspect of of connecting with other autistics.  There are a lot of […]

Writing About Science — Day 13 — 30 Days of Autism Acceptance — 2018 Autism Acceptance Month

Currently trying to get a little bit closer to be on schedule for the series.  Today one of my friends (well not sure about that term in general, but I’ll use it) was asking about how we can do “science” in psychology, and if it could be considered to be a “legitimate science”. This was […]
