Guest BLOG Guidelines
Autistic Parents UK is an autistic-led charity supporting parents who are autistic themselves with children of any neurotype. Our blog supports parents by sharing information, advice and lived experiences.
We welcome applications to write a guest post for our blog. We appreciate contributions that are of interest and relevance to autistic parents. The content must be unique and not shared anywhere else, including your own site.
We particularly encourage contributions from under-represented groups within the autistic community, for example, black and brown people, people with LGBTQIA+ identities, and people with physical disabilities.
The blog post must be a minimum of 500 words. You must also include at least one relevant image. Stock photos are fine, but if you don’t own the image please let us know whom to credit. Please include links within the article (including links to your own site, if you have one) as long as they are relevant. No spam links, please!
If you would like, you can include a short bio about yourself at the end of the article. This can include links to your own website, social media etc. An image of yourself or your own website/blog logo would also be great here too if you have one.
We will review the text to ensure it meets our quality standards, and we can also help you with editing for spelling and grammar.
Please follow our content guidelines to help us promote a positive autistic identity:
we encourage the use use of identity-first language (autistic person) instead of person-first language (person with autism) - although if your preference is different please let us know.
please do not use functioning labels e.g. ‘high-functioning’, ‘low-functioning’, ‘severe’, ‘profound’, ‘mild’ etc.
avoid using pathologising language such as ‘disorder’, ‘condition’ or ‘deficit’.
Once your post is approved and published, we will share it on our social media channels and we encourage you to do the same.
Please contact email@example.com if you would like to write for us or with any questions.
