Autism project ideas that I have no clue how to start/run
- Autistic mentors network, connecting young Autistic people with older Autistic mentors, a sort of You Are Not Alone, we can get through this together thing to help with self-esteem and mental health issues
- a guide to give to house/room mates of Autistic people. I find it so exhausting to try and educate each housemate I encounter, and find I forget the little things, like the need to have plates stacked a certain way, my annoyance in wet floors, and sensory issues. It’s great that there’s materials for Autistic people, but what about the other people in the household? Why do we always have to be the ones to compromise? Especially when other members are willing to learn about what we need to live comfortable?
As for the network, haven’t heard much about that sort of thing, but I think it might be good to have. It just seems like something that I don’t have the spoons to do.
