A Bibliography of autistic authors

Amanda M Baggs


A list of autistic authors, previously published on autistics.org.

This was originally part of the library of articles available on the Autistics.org web site and therefore the references are not to any particular academic style. Although the list is not up to date it is nonetheless worth wider publication as it contains a valuable number of references not to be found collected elsewhere, and it is the editors consideration that they should be more widely known.
