Simply Drive Mom Crazy. I am not going to tell people ways on which to drive their mom crazy. It simply a metaphor.
My name is Jason Ross who is a 34 year old Autistic Adult and Autistic disability rights activist. I support the Autistic Self-Advocacy Network, and what used to be Autism Network International and now is Association for Autistic Community, and Ollibean.
I have Asperger Syndrome. I have always believed in Neurodiversity. A lot of people think of me as the peacemaker in the community because I am always trying my best to bring the whole community together.
I am the type of person who always wants to learn and do new things. I gear up for it. Whenever I see something new, I try to experience it unless say its something that won’t be good for me.
This site will hopefully give you a glimpse into my world. A world which is also part of the Autistic World.
