Hi, and thanks for visiting!

My name is Steph, and I am the writer, editor, developer, scheduler, and “everything else-er” of Full Spectrum View. This blog is all about my journey through life as a person on the autism spectrum who wasn’t diagnosed until adulthood. I am sharing my story, the struggles, triumphs, and everything in between, even some general stream of consciousness musings. I have three goals for this site: 1) To give people a better insight into how I view the world as a person with autism; 2) To show other people like me that you’re not alone and hopefully help them not have to go through some of the struggles I have; and 3) To show the world, whether you have autism, care for someone who does, or simply want to know more about it that even being neurodivergent, it is still possible to take a Full Spectrum View of the world!
