What is this project?

This is the second and last part of a two part survey. Please fill in both to complete.

I am compiling a book and a show to be performed anywhere by any autistic people. It is called Stealth Aspies and attempts to convey the experience of being autistic and what it is like to not know this (until you find out) and what it is like to hide it from the world if you ever do.

I am in no way funded for this project so any money made from the book and show goes my expenses, then to pay my wages for doing it.
In completing this questionnaire you hereby agree to those terms.

I am a 52 year old autistic adult called Paul Wady and you can find out all about me here: www.paulwady.com.

I am also the man behind the Guerilla Aspies show and the Guerilla Aspies - a neurotypical society infiltration manual book.  
Both can be found online.

I seek to be a conduit for my kind. So anything contributed will be edited as little as possible if at all. I hope not to change anything, merely tailor it all into a greater whole to form a coherent experience with some sort of narrative.
