Autism from the Inside

Some months back, someone on pointed me to Jim Sinclair's website. When I got there, I was enthralled. Jim Sinclair is autistic, and explains his own worldview in a way I'd never encountered before. Unfortunately, that website is gone now. You can still read one of his essays, Don't Mourn for Us. And maybe you can find others.

Today I discovered another autistic person's blog, Cat in a Dog's World. She writes more about the politics, and less from a personal perspective, but there's still lots there.


  1. "We are alive. We are real. And we're here waiting for you."

    very moving stuff. thanks for the link.

  2. I emailed Jim Sinclair and he replied. He hopes to have a new website up soon.

    I told him that I've worked with at least one student 'on the spectrum', and the next time I have a student like that, I'll be reading Jim's great stuff again, for insight.
