Confetti Dreamers is the result of a 10-year journey that started with a creative spark, a dose of discontent, and a nudge that wouldn’t go away.

My blog post Say What? You’re Autistic? shares a bit of my story.

From my humble point of view, everything, EVERYTHING is connected. (Think Butterfly Effect or the Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon.)

As someone who does a lot of self-reflecting, all of my life experiences connect and relate to where I am today. For those of you who relate to the rabbit hole thought process, here is a visual of what’s going through my mind as I write this:

Maybe here’s a more succinct summary…

After publishing my first book and wavering about what to do with it, I discovered the private Facebook Group, Autistic Women+ Living Authentically.

As many members often express, the group was life-changing for me. I had finally found my tribe, albeit a virtual tribe, but a tribe(!). I have learned so much by reading others’ posts. 

The problem is, my brain struggles with processing information shared in an organic space like Facebook, where there is no linear path. I find myself wanting to filter all the wonderful, shared ideas and resources into a searchable database because I LOVE details and efficiency. I decided to see if others have a similar desire, which is why I conducted research for my Master’s Degree Capstone to find out. And, guess what? I’m not alone. See results below.

Coming soon! A searchable list of resources shared by members of Autistic Women+ Living Authentically.

Research Results

I posted a survey to the Facebook Group and asked if anyone wanted to meet with me for a 1:1 interview. After analyzing the data from 23 surveys and 3 interviews, I found some trends*. Click to see my Research Results.

* Disclaimer: This was done for a 6-week grad class, so I didn’t have enough time to collect enough surveys for statistically reliable and valid results. But…there are golden nuggets.
