Things You Should Never Say To Someone With Autism

There are some things you should not say to someone with autism. Sometimes we mean well, but these phrases can actually do more harm than good. Not all autistic people are the same. Different people will have different traits/habits with their autism. I will address the phrases that were said me to as well. Sometimes people don't know any better. Some people are just outright ignorant. When it comes to a disorder like autism, it's unpredictable as to how your aspie will be affected. The doctor who diagnosed your aspie may not know how your aspie will be affected. All he can do is tell you possibilities



I don't know about you, but I hate being compared to someone else who has different circumstances than me.
You Should Not Tell The Aspie That They Don't 'Look' Autistic  My friend actually said this when I told her I was autistic, why does everyone think autism has a look? If you google people with autism, they will look like regular folks, right? Autism is not lik…

How I landed My First Writing Gig And Made 25 Dollars

I know 25 dollars is not a lot. I feel it's better than no money at all. I still would like to explain how I landed my first writing gig and made 25 dollars blogging. This was fairly simple. Sometimes you just need a little guild to help you out. Sometimes you just need that person to throw you a lifeline.


This started when I wrote a book about autism and employment, I give a little explanation about the book on this blog.  I was a bit down because no one was buying my book. I posted in an autism group I am in and a member told me about an autism page that promotes work from people on the autism spectrum. I messaged the page and one of the admins got back to me asking me to write an article for them about autism and employment. You can go here to see the article. I did it for more than just the money or to promote my book. I did this to help with my experience to help me land freelance writing jobs. I am sure this will be helpful if I wrote articles for other sites about the topic…

Stish.Io A Social Media Site You Should Join Today!

Let's be real, some of you are tired of Facebook, Twitter's BS, right? I am about to explain to you a no BS site that you should be joining right now called Stish.io. Now, what is Stish.io? Stish.io is like Facebook but with a twist, you can earn crypto rewards. You get rewarded for posting good quality photos. You use Facebook, Instagram and the CEO's get the money. How's about a site where YOU get rewarded? Tired of your Twitter getting suspended for speaking your mind? That won't happen on Stish. Tired of getting your Facebook account blocked? Won't happen on Stish. Moral of the story, all the issues you have with Facebook or Twitter you won't have with Stish.io.
It's also irritating on Facebook when your posts get buried therefore no one sees it. Or Facebook hiding posts that get little to no engagement. Irritating, right?
If you are a writer, blogger, YouTuber looking to expand your brand. Or you just want to get away from the giants. Stish can help…

My Open Letter To Future Freelance Writing Client(s)

My name is Jasmine Williams. I am 23 years old. I struggle with high functioning autism. Due to this, it's been hard finding a job. I have been blogging since 2017 on Wordpress. I am passionate about being a Freelance Writer. I can write about autism and mental health. I can write about topics that aren't really talked about. Like how aspies struggle with employment. If you want more info you can check out other autism blogs that I have written.
I have a second blog where I write about gaming, art, and YouTube.

I started making blogs about autism and mental health last year around the spring. Overall, I've been blogging since 2017. I want you to know what you have to be direct with me. I need a direct date and time that you need your article so I can plan accordingly. I need bullet points that you want in the article so it's what you want. I need enough time to plan the article. I schedule my articles but it still can't hurt to know ahead of time.

How To Give Criticism To Autistic People

I am a content creator. You're going to get feedback from people on how they feel you can do a certain thing better. I am tired of arguing. I am tired of taking their feedback the wrong and they think I can't take criticism. It's common for people on the autism spectrum do not handle certain types of criticism. It could be a low self-esteem thing as well. With us, we need a different approach to getting feedback. Another thing I have noticed is if I am not understanding what the person wants me to do because there are no visuals I can refer to, they will think I don't want their feedback if I try to explain why it will not work for me. This person told me they didn't like it when I read what the game is saying when I play games like Undertale, I will attach a link to one of my lets plays so you know what I am talking about. where you can make your own voice for the character. I explain I read what the screen is saying because if I don't, the viewers will get bo…
