All day I think about it, then at night I say it. Where did I come from, and what am I supposed to be doing? I have no idea. My soul is from elsewhere, I'm sure of that. And I intend to end up there...Who looks out with my eyes? What is the soul? I cannot stop asking. If I could taste one sip of an answer, I could break out of this prison...I didn't come here of my own accord, and I can't leave that way. Whoever brought me here will have to take me home.

Autistic researcher and neurodiversity advocate, Steven Kapp, along with fellow researchers, has designed an online training on knowledge of autism. The training aims to represent up-to-date "scientific knowledge" about autism, including ideas drawn from the neurodiversity movement. It is rare for training studies on autism to intentionally include Autistic people though this study is open to all adults. The study gives opportunities to critique measures and training, as a major part of the study is to see which aspects of "scientific knowledge" are considered relevant or true.

Check it out by clicking the link below! (The study takes about an hour and must be completed in one sitting.)

  1. My name is Vered Seidmann and I am conducting a study on Autism and the Social Media. I am a PhD student at the Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information Studies (WKWSCI), in Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. I study the voice and the presence of autism as reflected in social media. The direct voice of autistic people is under-explored and I find it extremely important to listen to the unique voice of autistic people. Your blog is very insightful and provides fruitful grounds for the better understanding of autistic people.
    I was wondering if I can be in touch with you for more detailed explanation. If you are willing, I would be very grateful to be in touch with you directly via e-mail and send you more detailed information. My e-mail address is: vered001@e.ntu.edu.sg .
    Thank you,
