These images and words are intended to show the general public who and what we are. Hopefully this project and others like it will undo some of the damage about Asperger's and Autism generated in the media in the past week. If you would like to add your photo or text to this page, please go over to my contact page and get in touch. Think CAREFULLY before you send photos of your children. These images WILL show up in search engines and are very public. They will show up in searches on my name, in particular. Thank you.
Autistic people, people who identify as having Asperger's or another autism spectrum condition, people with other disabilities, allies, parents, friends, community members, please feel free to send your images.
Other initiatives include Autism Shines on Facebook, which has many more images than this one.
Many beautiful images and words at
ThAutcast: Asperger's and Autism Community
The Autistic Adults Picture Project is one of the, or the, oldest collections of photos and text regarding Autistic adults.
Note that some of these images express our very real fears; others celebrate the joy of human diversity.
