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
Thank you so much for such a lovely note, Emily. Your words mean a great deal to me. 💕
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?

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.

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.
