  • Sorry, who are you?
    Happy International Day of People with Disabilities! This post will talk about another neurological disorder that has been linked to autism and which has made my life extra difficult; face-blindness!

    I want to talk a little bit about meltdowns. Why do they happen to autistic people? What do they look like? What should you do in that situation? Hopefully this post should clear up any misconceptions around this topic, and help any autistic readers to understand why our brains do this thing.
