Autism Acceptance Pins, Stickers, & Accessories – Celebrate Neurodiversity

The autistic community has been speaking out because we need more than autism awareness. We need autism acceptance, empowerment, and pride. Wearing autism pins, buttons, stickers, patches, and other visible affirmations of neurodiversity is a simple but important way to advocate for the rights of neurodivergent people. All of the autism pins, stickers, and other accessories in this list use the words and symbols actually autistic people have chosen to represent us. You won’t find a single puzzle piece here — except one that’s crossed out!

All of the items featured in this section are made by artisans and small business owners who are actually autistic and/or neurodivergent.

Autism Pins – Autistic-Owned Business

Autism pins - autistic and proud, neurodivergent.

These acrylic pins make it easy to show your neurodiversity pride. The actually autistic designer also makes stickers, keychains, and silicone bracelets.

Autism Pins and Keychains – Made by an Autistic and Disabled Artist

Autism pins and feelings wheel keychain.

These beautiful enamel pins and keychains are made by an autistic person in Australia. I especially love the feelings wheel keychain as many autistic people struggle with alexithymia, a difficulty identifying your emotions.

Autism Stickers and Buttons – Autistic-Run Business

Just Keep Stimming sticker, Flappy Hands are Happy Hands sticker.

These autism stickers encourage autistic people to embrace stimming and being ourselves. They are just a few of the awesome, or rather ausome, buttons and stickers you can find at Ausome Doodles, an autistic-run business.

Autism Pins and Stickers – Neuro Positive

Autism stickers - neuropositive designs by an autistic artist. Nothing about us without us.

“Nothing about us without us” is a rallying cry across the disability community. Autistic people can speak for ourselves, whether it’s by speech, signing, AAC, or just our actions — if neurotypical people will listen. These stickers, pins, and postcards are made by a neurodivergent artist.

Spicy autism sticker.

If you’re tired of your autism being dismissed as “mild,” you’ll love this “spicy autism” sticker. This autistic designer also has lots of items for women and AFAB folks whose autism often goes overlooked and undiagnosed. Wake up, world, women are autistic too; sometimes it presents differently in us, but we’re valid and need to be acknowledged!

Neurodivergent Infinity Symbol Enamel Pin – Autistic-Owned Business

Neurodivergent infinity symbol pins and stickers.

I’m a Person, Not a Puzzle Autism Pin and Stim Pin

Autism pins: I'm a person, not a puzzle, and It's my body and I'll stim if I want to.

People who are new to the world of autism often think of the puzzle piece as a symbol of autism awareness. But most autistic adults hate the puzzle piece, because it suggests that we are a puzzle that needs to be solved, or that autistic people are missing pieces compared to neurotypical people. 

Shop for anti-puzzle piece and more REAL autism awareness pins at Kate Does Create.

Autistic Pride, Anti-ABA, and Anti-Autism Speaks Buttons

ABA Is Abuse button, F Autism Speaks button.

Most autistic people tell it like it is, and these buttons do just that. We’re tired of neurotypicals trying to change us for their convenience using abusive ABA, and funding toxic organizations like Autism Speaks that think we need to be cured. Wear one or several of these autism buttons and let the world know how you feel!
