Inspiration

As an autistic person, I wanted to create something that would help other autistic people navigate through the neurotypical world.

What it does

This website has an "autism test" to determine the likelihood of the user having autism, as well as highlighting some famous autistic people, including links where users can learn more about autism and take action to help autistic people. It also has some of my "tips when talking to an autistic person".

How we built it

I used HTML, CSS, and JQuery on repl.it when creating it.

Challenges we ran into

I had issues getting the numbers to add up on the autism test. For a while, if 2 of my answers had values of 100, the return value would be "100100" instead of "200". I fixed this by subtracting negatives, as subtraction worked properly but not addition.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

I'm proud of how the website turned out; I did it all in about 9 hours. I'm especially proud of how the autism test turned out, as that definitely took the most time out of any of the tabs on my website. The website works on a mobile device as well as a computer!!

What we learned

I learned how to better implement forms within my website, as well as learning to make my website look good.

What's next for Autistic Hub

If I were to have more time, I would make the website more interactive, i.e. adding a comments section that would serve as a "safe space" for autistic people to talk about their autism.
