These images WILL show up in search engines and are very public. They will show up in searches on my name, in particular. BUT, please do not assume you have permission to use these images. You don't, unless you ask each person in the images. 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.
NEW: Text-based submissions will be accepted and will be interspersed with the photo images. Cartoons OK, too. Basic rules: Must not be "too long" (do your own blog entry for that!) and must stay to the topic of "This Is Asperger's. This Is Autism." Following basic netiquette will be a plus.
Other initiatives include Autism Shines on Facebook, which has many more images than this one.
Another Facebook page is Autistics, Not Monsters
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.
I am planning to write transcripts for all the images that have text, as soon as I get a chance.
