#ElevateAutisticVoices Day 9: Melanie Keiling

Melanie is the person behind the Autistic Grandma Facebook page. She’s autistic and a grandma!

I feel it’s important to acknowledge that autistic grandparents exist. They have always existed. And yet they feel forgotten about. There are hardly any studies, for example, of how aging effects autistic people.

Melanie provides plenty of insight into this topic, as well as insight into her grandchildren and her interactions with them.

I wish I had a granny like her!
