I am Rys and I am an autistic adult woman in my 30s with an autistic child who was diagnosed at 5. My daughter’s teachers didn’t really believe me that she was on the spectrum because she didn’t meet the full male “stereotypes” but I am very glad that I went full speed ahead with my gut and reaching out to the pediatric neurologist.
My main goal here is to help spread awareness and resources for other autistic women and girls out there. The world is lonely enough without feeling like a you’re entirely broken because no one believes that autistic ladies actually exist.
