Sparrow Rose Jones is probably best known for their blog, Unstrange
Mind: Remapping My World, and their previous book, No You Don’t: Essays
from an Unstrange Mind, both of which deftly narrate their examination of
themself, their identity as an Autistic person, and the changing state of access
and civil rights for Autistic people. Their essays have covered everything
from famous civil rights and criminal cases in the media to sexuality and
relationships, life skills, coping mechanisms, and personal introspection.

In The ABCs of Autism Acceptance, Sparrow takes us through a guided tour
of the topics most central to changing the way that autism is perceived, to
remove systemic barriers to access that have traditionally been barriers to
Autistic participation in some sectors of society. They also take us through the
basics of Autistic culture, discussing many of its major features and recent
developments with a sense of history and making the current state of the
conversation around this form of neurodivergence clear to those who are new to
it, whether they are Autistic themselves or a friend/family member looking for
resources to help themselves support the Autistic people in their lives more fully.

While it is impossible to capture the full scope and diversity of Autistic
communities—and there are many of them out there—this book does serve as
an important conversation starter, a primer, and a humble guide to the world.
In these 26 short essays, you will find most of the topics most often blogged about
by Actually Autistic authors, including footnotes, resources, and references
to other writers whose works continue the conversations that start here.
