Hallo! I’m am a 31 year old woman who was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome ten years ago when I was an undergraduate student. My bachelor’s degree is in education but I found the politics of teaching to be too much for me to handle. I attended graduate school, studying special education with a concentration in autism studies and Applied Behavioral Analysis but was unable to complete my degree. I hope to get back to school soon. I have worked as a private tutor and most recently for a company that provides ABA therapy to children with autism and other disorders. I wanted to share my story as an autistic adult and what it was like growing up with a myriad of autistic behaviors but no diagnosis. I hope that my experiences can offer insights to those who read it. If there is a particular question or experience you’d like me to discuss please contact me. I’ll answer to the best of my abilities.
