About H2

Hunter Hansen is a storyteller putting a voice to autism and other topics on the autism spectrum.

The tales of autism are often told from those on the periphery; as an autistic adult, Hunter is in the epicenter, relaying and rehashing what autism is like “on the inside.”

In addition to writing for The Life Autistic, he works as a Business Analyst for Apple and writes content for the finest news source in Waynesboro, Virginia.

If you’ve ever watched anything on YouTube, The Life Autistic is there too.

And if you’re interested in H2’s professional side (and voluminous hair) – here’s his ironic LinkedIn

He lives in Denver with his wife, three daughters, and two dogs.

  1. Thank you so much for sharing what you share. I just found you here after being directed to your do’s and don’ts video. I sort of fast forwarded it for now to make sure I’m doing the do’s and not the don’ts (I am – phew). But I will go back and re-watch and watch all your videos when I can. Knowing you have all this information specifically for parents is really wonderful. I have an amazing son who is autistic. I am also a LCSW who sometimes has autistic clients and I will be recommending your videos to their parents. Thank you so much!

  2. Hi Hunter! I’m not sure what the best way to get in touch with you is! I’m an autistic self-advocate and Ph.D. student who is writing a paper on autistic self-advocacy in partnership with several online content creators. I would love to include your work and cite you as a collaborator (or keep you anonymous if preferred). Please feel free to get in touch if interested!

  3. Hey Hunter,
    I just viewed your video on “Autistic Person Answers the Web’s Most Searched Questions about Autism” and had a realisation.

    I have realised that many autistic people once preferred and some still do prefer to use the designation “Asperger’s,” because of the negative images often portrayed by Hollywood and the media, associating “Autism” with the extremely challenged individuals with obvious symptoms. And then neurotypical people will see that and say, oh that person is retatded” It’s identity masking. The term “Asperger’s” has fewer negative connotations than “Autism” does for the general public. We who are inside the definitions understand that labels are just labels, a person’s true identity goes much deeper than a convenient label could ever denote.
