As we showcase the experiences of people on the autism spectrum to celebrate Autism Acceptance month, we have also come across some fun and helpful comics! Comics and graphics like these can be helpful because of the visuals, examples, and perspective of what the person with autism may be thinking.
Content sourced from Unashamed Voices of Autism Facebook page.
It is also sourced from a Facebook group, Unashamed Voices of Autism which is a platform for adults with autism to post relatable memes and other content! When we explore resources, especially those that offer tips and advice such as this, it is important to make sure people within the community being represented are behind the information and content. We want to hear directly from people within the group who have lived their own experiences, and only when they would like to share it with us!
Consider sharing this comic with your loved ones to join us in celebrating this important month! These are simple, easy to understand guidelines that could make a huge difference for someone when communicating.

Welcome to Lifelong Access.
You may know us as Marcfirst, but we've recently undergone a name change. Why? Because in every phase of life, it’s never a question of if we helped. It’s how we help that truly counts. And how much we helped. Because our clients never outgrow us. And, we never outgrow them. Hence, our new name: Lifelong Access.
