People with Autism Spectrum Disorder often have intense interests or fixations. This blog is a space for young adults to showcase their interests, thereby providing a medium for their voices to be heard. All of the interest posts are written by autistic people, with commentary from Dr. Christine Grimaldi.
Many of our interests are drawn from pop culture and contemporary media; this includes franchises such as Marvel, Pokémon, and Lego. Certain media or topics seem to draw particular attention from autistic audiences, but special interests can also cover other topics — for example, science or history.
