Autistic People Speaking Out and Parenting

There is a team of adults with autism running a project called “Autistic people speaking out” to show the world what we have to say.

If you’re interested, go to their website: http://autistics-speaking.tumblr.com/

 

Some people with autism would like to be parents like other people. Even though autism would make it difficult for that person to be a parent,  that doesn’t mean they’ll be parents. Most people with autism turn out to be good parents. Autism has nothing to do with the reproduction side. It doesn’t cause infertility.

Here’s a link of an autistic pregnant woman: http://autistics-speaking.tumblr.com/post/55965301552/autistic-and-pregnant

 

On the adoption dept., they have to prove to the adoption agencies of their capabilities before they’re allowed to adopt a child.
