My name is Courtney, and I’m an autistic adult trying to navigate life as independently as possible. I have experience in both being on the spectrum, as well as raising my younger brother before I left for university. I am engaged to my best friend, who is also autistic.
I have several disabilities that require me to use a cane/wheelchair, so that will be a topic occasionally mentioned as well.
Currently, I’m attempting my Bachelors of Science degree in Sociology with a minor in Special Education. At my university, I founded and am currently President of our Neurodiversity Club – and am also Vice President of Delta Alpha Pi, an honors society for students with disabilities.
On the side, I am also the volunteer Teen and Adult Social Scene Coordinator for the local Autism Society’s community center. I also lead workshops and presentations on autism and related topics. When I’m not busy with classes, organizations, or doctor appointments, I’m usually napping with my cat.
I created this blog to simply gather and organize my thoughts, as I like having a resource to refer back to when needed.
This page is temporarily under construction until I have more posts completed, as it currently feels redundant.
