Autistic introversion vs autistic extroversion

Posted by: alisrowe, December 9, 2019

I always used to think that autistic people could only ever be introverted.

As The Curly Hair Project developed, I soon realised this belief was completely false, because I have come across so many autistic extroverts.

In this article I want to discuss why people might have the belief that autistic people are introverted, what the differences are between autistic introverts and extroverts, and how we can possibly support each type so that they have a fulfilling and enjoyable life!
