Help us tell the autism story!

Autism is a journey.
Journeys are adventures.
Adventures are stories.

Just because COVID has us cooped up, doesn't mean we shouldn't continue to explore and grow. This year, we wish to turn our attention to what lies ahead - the adventures we have yet to take. We may not feel like we can go far geographically, but we do have far to go as we grow up with autism. Far to go to unlock potential, possibilities and dreams. This is what adventure is made of - getting out of our comfort zones, testing our limits, challenging boundaries. AutismUp aspires to bring all of our families along as we journey to discover all the ways we can move onward, and upward!

Let's embark on this journey, together. You are not alone. AutismUp has built pathways for families growing up with autism, and we encourage you to follow them and help us build new pathways along the way.  Stories from you -  our members, families, staff, supporters and more - about your own growing adventures will help to inspire and support others on their autism journey! We love to learn from one another and your experience could be an AUsome profile feature to help someone.

Get started by sharing a story, experience or advice.  The floor is yours.  Write as much or as little as you care to share.  Some topics follow should you need a little inspiration!  Thank you for being a part of our circle of support and the AutismUp family.

***Every topic is optional.  They are just to get you thinking!  Respond to what speaks to you.  Thank you for your time and input!

LEAD THE WAY: Share something you've learned on your autism journey that will guide others living with autism on their journey.
