It’s April, which means it is once again Autism Month! In its honour, here are some of my favourite autistic and/or ADHD creators on Instagram.
May or iinsidemyhead posts lots of affirmations with super cute art. They also sell communication hoodies which are honestly one of the best things I’ve seen. I really want to get one of the highland cow ones!
For the absolute coolest crochet cosplay, follow Sarah at stitched in starlight cosplay. Their Rainbow Dash cosplay is spectacular! You can also buy some of their patterns on Etsy, including a very cute Eevee backpack pattern.
Have you watched Heartbreak High? It is one of (if not the) best show for having an autistic character played by an autistic actor! The character Quinni is played by Chloé Hayden who has a very cute aesthetic. Her Instagram chloeshayden features lots of posts about autism, ADHD, and chronic illness.
If you are autistic I wish you a happy and safe autistic month. And to the allistic and neurotypical allies, please continue to do your best to support the autistics in your life.
Gabriel is a contributing writer from Yorkshire who loves everything creepy cute. You’ll usually find them crafting, and trying to keep yarn away from Kiki, their tortoiseshell cat. When they’re not creating super cute amigurumi, they’re probably trying to figure out how to dress as a kawaii vampire or dreaming about visiting Tokyo.
