Christa Holmans - Neurodivergent Rebel

Patient Leader

My name is Christa Holmans, I’m an autistic adult. When I was diagnosed autistic at the age of 29, less than 3 years ago, I started a passion project called Neurodivergent Rebel. The blog was a response to all the negativity, gloom, doom, and misinformation about autism on the internet. I don’t think being autistic makes me defective or broken. I believe that I have a different type of mind, that allows me to view the word with unique and fresh perspective. This idea is controversial, because, autistic people also have weaknesses. Despite my difficulties, I LOVE being autistic and would never want to give it up. Follow me to find out how autism isn’t what most people think it is.

Christa didn't receive her autism diagnosis until she was an adult. She has made it her mission to advocate for autistic people, both children and adults. She sees a world where neurodiversity is accepted, appreciated and supported. And, she does it all with a positive attitude. Her You Tube videos, blogs, FB and Twitter posts are most supportive.  — Dr. Sharon A.

Christa was one of the first Autistic advocates I connected with when entering into the Autistic Community as a blogger and advocate myself. She is always open, helpful, encouraging and continues to share what her experiences are as a Autistic female to raise a greater understanding into what it's like and what can help.  — Kylie
