Autism blog

I only realized recently that I’m autistic with ADHD. This is a profound realization to me, since I never understood why some aspects of my life were so dramatically different from others (I thought, for a very long time, that the notion of a happy childhood was a hoax), until I learned about my neurodivergence. I am currently sifting through my life’s experience through this new lense and will blog my thoughts here. I will here focus on how my autism shapes my work as a linguist and professor.
