Autism HWB

Autistic Health and Wellbeing

Autism Health and Wellbeing (AutismHWB) is a space for autistic people to share the things that they have found helpful and healing. It was set up in 2019 by Florence Neville (Flo) and Rhiannon Lloyd-Williams (Rhi).

All articles are written by autistic contributors and cover a range of topics describing strategies that help make their lives easier. If you are autistic (no clinical diagnosis necessary) and would like to join our contributors in sharing your knowledge, then we would love to hear from you!

For articles contributed by our knowledgeable autistic contributors, and researched through their own trial and error, check out our Blog

Autism, Autodidacts and Autonomy

The inspiration for this website came from Flo’s research masters study. She interviewed late diagnosed autistic women to find out how they learned about and managed their own health and wellbeing. Read more about the findings of that study here
