Our Autistic Culture
We thrive from being
authentic, knowing and respecting our diverse hearts, minds and bodies.
We challenge the way we were raised,
how family, friends, professionals or service practices
expect us to think, feel and be.
We do not want unsolicited advice or suggestions,
or expected to take on other cultures as our own
We are all individual.
We do, however, invite genuine inquiry to seek
understanding, respectful listening
to embrace who we are,
not confusing our neurology with psychology
or projecting non-autistic and neurodivergent
understanding of who we are.
Our Beautiful Mind
We love, trust, revel and lead
with our beautiful autistic minds &
hearts, identities and cultures.
We strengthen another’s inner–connection,
our good sense of self, autonomy,
self-actualisation and self-determination
through embracing one’s neurobiology.
We learn how to KNOW, DIRECT and MASTER
our individualised autistic
way of being, loving, learning & living.
We place safety, self–care & well-being first;
listening and trusting ourselves
creating a healthy relationship with ourselves,
choose the right relationships,
social groups & environments for us.
We use respectful language about our identity, culture, neurobiology and lived experiences.
We know, direct & master our lives &
what we do
We respect and revel in our neurodivergence
Our "brilliant intuitive guide" is designed
to nurture, respect and protect
our innate Neurodivergent Flow
who we are
whom we are born to be
Trusting our intuition leads to
greater fulfilment and happiness
Accept our limitations, know our diverse needs
and love what we love
Turn our attention toward knowing and
mastering our dynamic areas of interest
Refrain from others expectations that
might exceed and cripple our capabilities
Let go of accommodating others demands
and practice self-care
Embrace radical self-acceptance and
We are individuals – living differently
and we're proud of it
Know our gifts, love our strengths
and nurture them wholeheartedly.
