Autism From The Inside
I’m writing this journal entry to promote the videos made by Paul Micallef from Autism From The Inside.
Paul is someone who discovered his autism at age 30. His videos offer insight into what it’s like to be autistic, the challenges that people with autism face because of the way society treats us, myths, misconceptions, and how to live well with autism.
If you asked me what the best resources are for educating oneself about autism, I would direct you to Autism From The Inside. Paul’s explanations are the best resource I’ve found, hands down. Paul doesn’t just talk about the science, but shares his real, day-to-day lived experience as an autistic person.
Admittedly, I’m biased in favor of Paul’s videos because I relate to his experiences. It’s important to keep in mind that all autistic people are different. No single voice, not mine nor an informed articulate one like Paul’s, can represent all of us.
I already write about my own experiences with autism, but I think it could be even more insightful to share my thoughts on Paul’s autistic experiences and how they relate to my own. I’ll probably do that at some point in the future. Stay tuned!
