Posted this answer to a really f’ed up question in Quora
Today I was bullied and made feel like I am a freak, I came home feeling rubbish and guess who was here to cheer me up :3
I love autism memes
My brother ran his 11th straight NYC Marathon on Sunday with guides and loves admiring his medal! So proud of you!
But I don't hate autistic people!
Don’t look her in the eye
Diagnosed with autism at 2, I was told “don’t expect to see emotions or hear ‘I love you Daddy’ because that’s a ‘typical’ trait”...at 3 1/2 years old I get a kiss every night after story time right before she tells me “Night Night Daddy, I love you”
I like this :)
My non-verbal son started making these structured patterns 4 years ago and we had no clue what they were. He's 7 now. He finally told us today. Movie credits.
Marking off the list like:
Speech language pathologist meets Child with autism
Sad, but true :(
My autistic, vacuum obsessed son has been invited to the numatic factory in Chard, UK for a tour to celebrate his 6th Birthday tomorrow. I'm equally as excited as him!!
I Wish More People Could Be Like This
There's more of them than me
Y’all have some nice hats
Just saw this on tumblr
I'm Really proud of what i painted last night!
My son is nearly 5 years old and nonverbal. Although he can’t speak yet, I’ve learned recently that he’s a wonderful speller 💙 he makes me so proud.
My autism den
Autistic people be like:
My autistic son had some art in an art gallery for a special needs art exhibit when he was 12
Made a meme, whatcha think?
For those interested in animation/filmmaking
Hi, I have been doing drawings as advised by a counsellor to try and get out of my own head. I thought this would be a good place to share....
This hits me.
Figured this would be apropos here
I don't really like hats so here's a snake wearing one instead
It do be like that
It be like that sometimes tho
My 6 yo nonverbal son wrote this yesterday! First time writing any words and without physical hand-over-hand prompting. We are so proud of him I had to share!
We will survive
It's pretty refreshing to see an Autistic kid meme that isn't totally insensitive. My sister sent this to me.
Every damn day
For real 😂
How autistic shutdowns and meltdowns are made.
This autistic guy just quit his job at Mac Donald's and got hired at a real restaurant!!!
BF found this this morning gave me the giggles. If it's a repost enjoy it again.
Rocking might look odd to most people, but it feels natural to me! I wanted to make a comic showing how it felt.
My special interest is art as well as birdwatching. I feel they make a great combination. Reference photo was my own.
The struggle is real
Living in a NT world
Animal v People. Yep, this is me too!
Caleb is right on!
I was shocked (in a good way) to see Samantha Bee say this!
Look at me!
We can't all be neurotypical KAREN
The two words no autistic wants to hear in class:
Pretty much this... just that I barely know what that ratio is.
How do I make it more clear when I'm joking?
High functioning at its finest...
Kids are amazing
I get you don’t seem autistic a lot
Today is my son’s 4th birthday. He didn’t have a big party (just five family members). Nothing beat seeing the smile on his face opening the gift we got him: a new vacuum. Vacuums are his obsession. This will be his fourth. 😊
Special interests are the language that we use to understand the world.
I was going down a rabbit hole of peta ads and saw this horrible ad, WHAT THE HECK PETA!
Biked a full marathon today as a guide to my brother with autism (who ran and completed all 26.2 miles) What an amazing experience 😁
Since you guys/gals/others liked my first painting so much I thought I would go for a second one!
Our local supermarket doing the right thing
I'm glad she's the person that everyone thinks of when they hear autistic
Y’all with your hats! Here is my 3 year old non verbal kiddo wearing the laundry basket!
To weird to be normal and to normal to be weird.
Take a gander at this tiny hat I borrowed!
Everyone always used to tell me that I'd never be able to drive due to my Autism and Aspergers. I used to be shamed for wanting to become a motorsports driver. Well, look at me now! I turned 16 recently, and I've been driving for a few months now, and I nearly have my license. I even have a car now!
saw this at my local grocery store :D
That’s just fucking awesome
My son with autism is graduating High School. Here he is with his autism assistance dog guide, Yohan.
A few steps to encourage can change a persons life.
My autistic son accepted two bursaries for University this fall. Non verbal until 5, graduating on time with his peers (in the same classes too). I posted this picture of him with his service dog with his permission.
something I think I've observed
My 5-year-old daughter has autism. She just drew herself as a flower, and I've never loved a piece of art more than this!
My custom made weighted blanket came in!! Mommy gave it to my as a month early birthday present!!!
My son learned to tie a shoe! I wanna cry. I thought this day would never come
I drew a comic to explain the biggest source of my meltdowns. (Oc)
saw this on tumblr and thought it was relatable here.
Small talk is confusing.
My son has Autism and turns 7 tomorrow and is in love with the lion king so me and the wife built this for him for his birthday present.He is going to go crazy!!!
Screw it, Dittosaur hat
My special intrest is art! Right now I really love watercolors, so here's a deer!!!!
I earned the rank of First Dan in Taekwondo the other day!!
My Dad and his GF found these whilst holidaying in the US and couldn’t help buying them for me. Almost too pretty to eat 😍
My Kiddo Spent Over an Hour on This. Loves Color!
Because there's more of them than me...
*flap* *flap* *flap*
I couldnt help but crosspost
*Update*My sons birthday! Just turned 7 today. Absolutely loves his gift. He has been playing with it non stop since he got home. Thank you to everyone and thanks for the support. We all know it’s hard dealing with autism but these are the days we live for!!!!
Good on them, he had a lot of upvoted, but i editted him higher up so the screenshot would be smaller
The daily hurdles.

This will be my first train journey solo. Wish me luck
Made my own Version of a common symbol for autism: he infinity-symbol with rainbow colors meant to represent the diversity of the autistic spectrum. What do you think about this one?
Pixar Loop a new short staring an autistic woman, is coming in january. Also, nurodiversity rainbow loop typography
Trying to remember what free time was like
Precise language: a thing the world could use more of.
Update on our Numatic factory visit from yesterday. Well it went AMAZING! Everything was perfect. He had the best time and the people showing us around were so lovely. They gave him a huge bag of gifts and a personalised, framed poster. All the workers took time to chat and let him tinker. So happy!
Never gonna figure it out
This made my day
My 29 year old brother with autism running the Boston Marathon with his two Achilles guides who assist him (water, fuel,bathroom,safety) all 26.2 miles! #WorldAutismAwareness
Hamsters and Pokémon are both special interests of mine, so imagine how happy I was when I took this picture!
This is beautiful
Happens way too often
We went a different direction for Autism Awareness Month this year!
We need more people like this
The autism identification cards are amazing resources, if they are available where you live I'd highly recommend picking one up.
If an autistic doesn’t respond, it doesn’t mean she can’t understand.
Since we’re talking about hats! My son always has to wear his, even to bed.
I made a card for my SO to help with troubleshooting when I enter a shutdown. It's such a relief to have I thought it might help someone else too.
Like wtf do you want me to say?
I told my mom I think I’m autistic
Who else has a huge problem with zoning/ spacing out? I’ve been told to stop zoning out, and it’s hard for me to control.
It’s the weekend!
“why are you so invested in this particular obscure thing???”
On a serious note, we autistics are often dismissed and gaslit by family, educators and professionals. This is how it feels.
Originally drew this lil guy for April but sharing him here now anyway :)
my bf acknowledging my tendency to take things too literally 😂
Thoughts? I have ASD.
Felt like this was relevant. Autistic people still have the ability to love, no matter how severe
This made me smile ☺️
That's a good start for autism-friendly shopping tours!
@mom groups: hot take
The only words a father needs.
I really am trying
TFW your routine is interrupted
Are you ‘on the spectrum’ or all over the spectrum?
just a repost
On the rare occasion
I asked my student why he was writing gibberish. Then I decoded it. It’s just one letter up in the alphabet. Third grade genius.

This is so sweet
Reality of autism, my hair gives me sensory issues when it starts to touch me so I have to shave it off. I wish I could grow it long but at least it looks half decent short.
can therapists stop diffusing their scents while i’m in the room? this happened at group today and i didn’t wanna cause a fuss but aaaaah
I made this hat myself :)))
