If you're an autistic adult, there probably hasn't been a whole lot of guidance or community for you past the age of 18. Joe Biel writes about what it's like to be autistic. Dr. Faith writes about what it's like to care for autistic folks, based on her experience as a parent, friend, and therapist. The zine covers diagnostic criteria and how they play out in practice, what it means for autism to be a disability, and co-occurring symptoms, like depression and anxiety, and life skills and social skills that a neurotypical world doesn't always think to teach autistic people.
