Next Steps

Photo taken by contributor autisticaplanet, a woman in her thirties who has Asperger’s Syndrome and accompanying anxiety related to social and sensory issues. She also has OCD. She writes a blog to pass along lifelong lessons to help those, adults in particular, dealing with Asperger’s. She hopes to help neurotypical people better understand the “complexities within the complexities” of autism spectrum disorders. She has had a passion for capturing images since childhood, when her father bought her a Kodak 110 on vacation. She’s been told that she sees and captures what others overlook or miss. Her work has been featured in the Daily Herald as well as the MAAP Newsletter, a publication for those with ASD and those who love them.

About this photo: “​​​​There are some changes going on in my life right now, but I am trusting in God and keeping a good attitude. Though the steps are uneven and the hill is steep, there is light on my journey, which is a substitute for The Light, Jesus Christ.”

    Glorious the way the sunlight is filtering in through the barren branches. Mother Nature is a beautiful and healing muse. Beautiful work, Allison! I wish you well working through the changes going on in your life right now. And i am glad you have chosen to help neurotypical people better understand the “complexities within the complexities” of autism spectrum disorders. You have talent, passion and purpose. I look forward to seeing more of your inspirational photography.

    Wonderfully captured moment in nature. It could be just me, but I see a hint of a lyre in the c-shaped image of the tree and curved connecting shadow. 🙂
