Hello this is Nathan Young, please add me as a friend on Facebook. I’m an autism self-advocate. I do a specific kind of autism advocacy and have done this autism advocacy since 2006.
The Autism Candles project and the candle project in general is about raising a specific kind of awareness and doing a certain type of autism advocacy. It’s about autism employment inclusion and including the idea of opportunity and equality for individuals on the autism spectrum in society.
Stores sell Autism Candles and they are also sold online. As the founder I’ve managed this project for over a decade. It’s not profitable nor intended to be. The candle project has been featured on social media, newspapers and on radio. For me this project is about making an important statement to help improve the inclusive odds of those transitioning to adulthood and for those who were left behind. While doing so funding is used to create awareness, pay for overhead and to employ some others with autism through a day program. Since COVID-19 that has been very difficult. However I remain confident and diligent in working on this autism advocacy project.
I continue to develop my skills and have learned computer programming with the help of day program support staff. A subject I easily flunked in traditional school but such environments were unreasonable to learn in. With daily concentration, no environmental distractions and mind altering transitions I have become quite good at it and now enjoy it. I remain optimistic and enjoy what I do.
I like hearing from others in the autism community email@example.com.

They are new so people do not have to spend $20 to see if they like the aroma of a candle. Over ten years ago I did 20,000 by hand they were distributed by newspapers, businesses andContinue reading “Autism Candles All This Week”
I custom wrote a captcha solution for bot deterrence for the new Autism Advocacy Network platform. Most of this week was dedicated to just writing that server side software and connect it to the front end. It was not difficult to do between myself and another member of the AAN development team. As the weeksContinue reading “Autism Advocacy Network [Another Week]”
