Not Weird Just Autistic is my creation to celebrate autism and neurodiversity and becoming a self-advocate.

I was diagnosed at age 46 and walked out of my psychologist's office and thought, "I'm not weird.  Just autistic."  I didn't know it at the time, but that phrase would shape the next chapter in my life.

Since turning to self-advocacy I've been lucky enough to meet and become friends with other amazing self-advocates and has many opportunities I thought he would never have.  I write not only for the Not Weird Just Autistic blog but am also a regular contributor to The Mighty and to Different Brains.   I've also been blessed with the opportunity to speak at the Missouri State Capitol to 1,500 advocates and self-advocates and to almost 4,000 via Zoom.

 

In late May or early June of 2021 I will be starting a podcast on Different Brains, Examining Neurodiversity, with my knowledgeable and personable co-host the one and only Neurodivergent Rebel--Lyric Holmans.  Stay tuned for more info!
