AOL Health interviews Dora Raymaker

12 Mar

AOL Health as a series of articles on autism. One, well worth your time to read, is by Dora Raymaker. The piece is Living with Autism, as Ms. Raymaker is an adult autistic.

I first became aware of Ms. Raymaker when she was blogging on She is a member of the Academic Autistic Spectrum Partnership In Research and Education (AASPIRE) and the Autistic Self Advocacy Network (ASAN).

The interview is well worth the time, take the time to go and check it out. Here is a snippet:

AOL Health: So, how does autism affect your life?

DR: This question has never made much sense to me. There is no part of my daily life that is not affected by my developmental disability. At the same time, I am a complete person, and more things than just my developmental disability color my experiences. I can’t separate out the integrated parts of me. How does not having a developmental disability affect the life of someone who does not have one? How can that question be answered?
