Autism Resources

In-progress update plans for Summer/Winter 2017: Repair broken Tumblr redirect links, remove otherwise broken links, revamp sections, and add a short sentence for context on majority of links.

Overview

This resource collection in progress is mostly autism-specific. I collected some of the links as early as 2013-2014, when I first got into disability rights. My views may have changed, or the links may have broken. The table of contents with clickable sections is being revised.
