Autistic/similarly neurodivergent people can have difficulty with reading and/or math, related to autism or to a different condition such as dyslexia or dyscalculia. #AutChat

All autistic/similar #AutChat participants can answer today’s questions, even if you don’t have an additional diagnosis such as dyslexia or dyscalculia that contributes to your reading/math difficulties.

Q1: Do you have (or have you had) reading or math difficulties? #AutChat

Q2: How have your reading/math difficulties affected you across your lifespan? #AutChat

Q3: Does autism/similar neurodivergence affect your reading or math difficulties? Does it affect how you cope with them? #AutChat

Q4: If you have difficulties with reading *and* math, do the two experiences affect each other? (For example, when you try to do “word problems” in a math class?) #AutChat

Q5: Do you have any advice, tips, or assistive aids you want to recommend to other autistic/similar people who also have reading or math difficulties? #AutChat
