Hello All! My name is Sara and I’m 44yo, queer, Autistic, and ADHD. I was diagnosed at 42. I’m Gen X, and we really are the “forgotten generation,” especially as far as ADHD and ASD diagnoses go. I showed so many signs growing up (see my blog, I have a post about this), but growing up in the 80s, ADHD and ASD were things only “boys” had.
I am a Special Education teacher at a high school. However, I have worked with students in grades K-5. I usually teach summer school, but had a terrible time last year, so I’m taking the summer off. I might start a mini online business. Just for a little extra money.
I have many special interests, such as cats, animals in general, history, reading, and creating art.
I love giving advice when I know the subject of the question. Please feel free to leave comments!
Sara is one of three Autists who have volunteered to help manage this website if something happens to me.
Please contact us if you are Autistic and would like to join this team. We already have enough volunteers to perform the tasks required, so further volunteers will have the opportunity to influence the future of this website without obligating themselves. The more the merrier!
