Learn From Autistics publishes resources teaching about neurodiversity and environmental accommodations based on autistic* input. We understand every autistic person has a voice and that neurotypicals must respect and address the needs expressed by autistics and not dismiss them as flawed because of where they came from.

We believe that autistic input should not be merely sought out as an afterthought or addition to NT advocacy efforts, but rather, that autistic expertise is essential and fundamental to understanding autism.

Our website offers a variety of practical parenting and teaching resources with an emphasis on respecting the voice and dignity of the autistic person.
