An autistic researcher presents a participatory autoethnography developed to explore how transformational threshold moments present in autistic adults across knowledge levels, and how identifying these moments in a participatory way can be used to enable people, both autistic and non-autistic, to achieve their potential. The importance of bracketing through transpersonal reflexivity is elaborated and the reasons for achieving population-sensitive data collection and analysis methods are discussed. Considering how much more widespread autistic traits are than it was previously assumed, the presented autobiographic insights about how some autistic participants respond to the method of interviewing are deemed useful to all researchers who work directly with their research participants.
