‘Welcome to the Autistic Community’

To your autistic librarian’s collection of resources for people on the autism spectrum, add “Welcome to the Autistic Community,” released this week by the Autistic Self Advocacy Network (ASAN) and the Autism NOW Center.

The document is available as a PDF download from the ASAN website.

Available at reading levels suitable for adolescents and adults, the document “introduces newly-diagnosed Autistic people to the community and answers common questions they might have, covering topics such as legal rights and identity.”
