The term "mild autism" is not only inaccurate and misleading, but it's also harmful.


Because it merely describes how you experience my autism, and not how I experience it.

Moreover, it suggests a fundamental misunderstanding of what autism and the autistic spectrum is.

Just watch, listen, and learn.

I'm Jon. Husband, father, business owner, author, speaker, and outspoken advocate for autism awareness. I struggled my whole life knowing I was different, but not knowing how or why. I was finally diagnosed in 2019, but had informally self-identified as autistic for a couple of years before that. I live on a remote farm in Ireland with my wife and an assortment of cats and dogs.
