We recently passed the 1-year anniversary for the release of the Aspertools book. In honor of autism acceptance month, I want to thank everyone for helping make this dream a reality. We have learned so much and met many great people on this journey, but it has only begun! If you know anyone with a different brain, share the message of neurodiversity with them.
