With thanks to
This is an absolutely fantastic book for any adult who is either starting to realise they are on the Autism Spectrum or want to knowinformation about diagnostic pathways without a whole lot of psychobabble.
I have Aspergers which is on the Autism Spectrum, the author is on the Autism Spectrum too that s why this book is so good because it will speak to those who need this information How can someone who is not autistic write a book about what it s really like They can t, they miss key things.
The book is very easy to read and starts with the moments of self diagnosis and realisation, covers different feelings that come with that, has check lists of the criteria to meet an Autism Spectrum Diagnosis then tackles the question of why to get diagnosed Some do, some don t The book has excellent information in the diagnostic pathways in the USA for ad Excellent little book for those of us who ve come to suspect we re neurodiverse on the spectrum instead of neurotypical Defines autism spectrum disorders, describes the process of getting an official diagnosis and how that might not even be possible for everyone , and discusses how to properly self diagnose Highly recommended.
