This blog has been created by students of an English class at the University of Michigan specializing in autism studies. We mean for this blog to be used as an open forum for not only our class, but also for others interested and curious about autism and its culture and representation. We hope to provide a safe and welcoming environment to discuss current topics, ideas, advocacy, and policies regarding autism and its many facets. We also hope our site brings awareness to those unfamiliar or uninformed about autism, and that it helps generate professional and intelligent discussion. Welcome and enjoy!
