This site exists to undo the myths about autism and empathy that have stigmatized autistic people for so long.
It features writing by autistic individuals, by autism parents and family members, by autism professionals, and by others who understand that autistic people, all along the spectrum, can experience the world in highly empathetic and sensitive ways. Telling our stories, describing our experiences, and speaking the truth in our own voices, we can break dehumanizing stereotypes and increase understanding.

Autismo y Empatía is a Spanish-language version of the Autism and Empathy website. While not a mirror image of the English-language site, Autismo y Empatía will feature translations of many of the posts published here, with attribution and links back to the original pieces, along with new posts by native Spanish speakers.
Many thanks to Karen for her initiative in setting up the site, and for taking on the work of translation in the midst of her busy schedule.
