  1. Fantastic resource list, and I am honored to be on it! I’m thankful for your friendship, Ariane. That’s an honor too! My love to you!

  2. Wow! What a useful and extensive list! (And I, too, am honoured to be included.)

    Thank you for the work you are doing to support and broaden the reach of perspectives that support neurodiversity – focused particularly the perspectives of Autistic people.

    Yes! This is made of win!

    (((Hugs))) and love to you, Araine ❤

  5. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS!!!!!! Really inspiring to hear you write about this, you have truly inspired me to fight harder to make a change in people’s mentalities happen, for us to actually start designing new forms of non-verbal communication to allow non-verbal autistic people and beyond to truly start expressing themselves and being understood! 🙂 🙂 Sending you all the love in the world, from the heart of a girl who’s never been able to fully communicate with her non-verbal brother, Joshua. Please never stop this inspiring work that you’re doing and know that all the hard work really is making a change ❤ all my love, Emily Gardner, London xxxxxxxx

  6. What a great resource list, Ariane. Thanks so much for sharing. Have you come across any blogs or other writing by/about people with SPD? And by/about women with “high functioning” (sic) Aspergers?

  7. Thanks a lot for this rich and generous sharing. Us a dad of two autists childs from Morocco, i learn much in your blog. Many thanks again.

  18. Thank you for this phenomenal list of resources. I don’t have any living children, but I have friends with children on the spectrum, non-speaking, physically and/or mentally “other abled” and I want to have resources to not only share with my friends, but to learn more about the different ways I can communicate and be there with them, parents and their awesome children! I want to be someone who can help, not hinder. Thank you again. I learn so much every day and hope I can make a positive difference in the world of at least one child.

  20. My blog contains a HUGE list of Autistic Blogs (by those with). Please add it to your list. Thank you. Maintaining and improving this list is my contribution to the Autistic Community.

  23. I have really loved reading the writings Emma has posted – such a gift that she has found her voice! I am an adult who has discovered late in life that I am on the spectrum. I was surprised that your resource list doesn’t include the work of Donna Williams – another non-speaking autistic woman who found her voice through typing (when she was 20). Donna has written many books and sadly for us she died last year. I found her experiences very different from my own but so appreciated her insights into how her mind worked.
