This episode comes with a trigger warning for discussion of sexual assault and victimisation. This was another uplanned episode, brought about by a recent discussion I had. I was reminded of a horrifying ststistic. That 9 in 10 autistic woman have experienced sexual abuse, domestic abuse or rape in their life.  This is part of my story and a reflection on why this is happening and what we might be able to do to influence this huge problem for the better!     If you are experiencing difficulty, it is okay to ask for help.

Monotropism and Neurodiversity show art Monotropism and Neurodiversity

Alphabet Soup! Exploring Complex Neurodiversity

Autistic people are often ‘monotropic’. Monotropic minds tend to have their attention pulled more strongly towards a smaller number of interests at any given time, leaving fewer resources for other processes.
