Our Autism Strengths (by which we mean unusual talents, skills, qualities,
and advantages—often beyond the normal range of human experience)
can set autistic people apart in positive ways that allow us to make unique contributions to society.
While not every autistic person will have all the strengths listed below, scientific research has found these traits to be common.
The reason we find it useful to keep a list like this is that—like us—you may very well discover some strengths you didn’t even know you had. And getting to know our strengths can be both validating and empowering!
