i was diagnosed autistic as a child but information on autism has changed a lot and my mom is still in a weird place on her knowledge, is there any good resources for autistic people and their family for things like support/etc (not autism$peaks and id like to avoid the term aspergers as much as possible)

      Unmasking Autism by Devon Price is an amazing resource for learning about yourself and a great place to start with getting your family to educate themselves. As for support, it depends on where you are. I wish I knew more about community resources, but they are very lacking with far and few.

        @mobilityaidbabe @concrete some other reads that can be good are Divergent Minds by Jenara Nerenberg particularly if you are AFAB. And neurotribes, mainly for family members (was a tough read for me already was frustrated with view and limitations, but it chronicles history of disability treatment with Autism and the tireless battle family and advocates have had to put up to get each small progression in how we are viewed. Also feel free to reach out, ive been collecting various other resources for neurodiverse challenges, so there is a possibility I have resources. I am using neurodiverse more generally because Ive found a lot of the struggles overlap.
