The Organization for Autism Research (OAR) was founded and is led by parents and grandparents of autistic children. Their focus is on using science and research to address the day-to-day concerns of autistic individuals and their families. They strive to improve the lives of those with autism by addressing the social, educational, and treatment concerns of those in the autism community.


Beyond the blog, on the OAR website, you can find many different resources including information for autistic job seekers, resources for military families, and support for neurotypical siblings.


If you want to learn from autistic voices…



NeuroClastic is a website that only features autistic writers and creators. On NeuroClastic, you will find a wide variety of topics including diagnosis, culture and identity! Their goal is to create a future for autistic people that is more accepting, accommodating, and empowering. We recommend you check out What autistics mean when we say this world is not made for us: How fun activities push autistics into the margins or My Brain Is Autistic.

If you want to learn more about autism in adults…

Embrace Autism


Embrace Autism is an organization created by Dr. Natalie Engelbrecht and Eva Silvertant in 2018. Both women were diagnosed with autism in adulthood. Dissatisfied with the information available on autism in adults, the two created Embrace Autism to help solve that problem.


On the Embrace Autism website, visitors can find information about autism in adults, and access free online tests and assessments. The Embrace Autism blog covers a wide range of topics including information on the latest autism research and diagnosis. Most of you have probably heard of the DSM, but what about the PDM?
