My Guest Post for The Body is Not an Apology

To top off this phenomenal week of SPD advocacy, here's my latest article for The Body is Not an Apology, a global self-acceptance and empowerment website. It's a slightly modified version of my post on differences, disorder, and disability from late April.

My Guest Post for The Mighty

Having a banner week here in SPD advocacy-land! Today, one of my favorite articles that I ever wrote, An Ode to My Handler, originally featured in Sensory Focus Magazine's spring 2014 edition, was featured on The Mighty's webpage. It's a piece about how pivotal my husband is to my sensory well-being. I call him my "handler" because not unlike a wild animal and a trainer, he helps me contain my sensory issues when they're at their worst.

My Guest Post for Everyday Feminism

Happy news, after reading my Neurotypicals' Guide to SPD on The Body is Not An Apology, the website Everyday Feminism asked to feature the same piece on their site! As a strong, smart, passionate woman, I am particularly excited about this non-solicited inclusion. The article has been shared like crazy all day, and has made the website's list of top articles today. I'm one happy advocate, indeed!
