Compensation for Neurodivergent Bloggers

Every blog is a story. Tell yours!

The Art of Autism, because of Facebook Birthday Fundraisers, is now able to compensate some of our bloggers. Bloggers must have a disability  and must either have a paypal account or a United States address to be compensated.  The Art of Autism receives on average 2,500 unique views a day on our website. Over the years we have had over 4.5 million views of pages on our website.

Beginning Jan. 2018, each month the Art of Autism has a budget of $400 for this initiative. As of June 30, 2020 we are pleased to announce that we have funding for this initiative to continue for another fiscal year (July 1, 2020 – June 30, 2021).


Bloggers will be paid $25 per published blog. If the blogger has published 3 prior blogs with the Art of Autism, they will be paid $50 per published blog (past Art of Autism blogs count towards the 3 blogs). One paid blog per blogger per month.

Blog Post Criteria

Blog posts we pay for must be high-quality submissions not published on other sites.

Blog posts must be autism or disability related. Blog posts about art, poetry, and music are welcome. Interviews are welcome.

Neurodivergent bloggers will be the only ones paid until we have funding for others to be paid.


See our Submission Guidelines here.


Bloggers must have a paypal account for payment or a United States address for payment. We will not send funds overseas in other ways than paypal (because of cost of mailing and cost of bank transfers).  Paypal transfer fees to other countries will be deducted from the amount we are paying.

Payments will be made once a month at the beginning of the month for the prior month.

When our budget is exhausted for a month, we will not be paying bloggers until the next month.
