Description

I think if I had been given this book as a teenager, I'd have discovered I am autistic a lot sooner and potentially saved a lot of stress and unhappiness. She has worked with children and young adults with a variety of physical and cognitive disabilities for around 30 years, and is very knowledgeable about ASD. I found I could relate very strongly to a majority of the passages in the book, both in my life currently and from my childhood.

Written by a 16 year old, told in their own words, to give such an inspiring and heart warming perspective of their life and autism.Wishing others understood more about the challenges of being on the spectrum, the teen shares his insights, perceptions, reactions, and experiences, from the triggers that lead to anxiety and shutdowns to tips for coping with stressful situations such as travelling, socialising, and communicating. It is a well written personal account explaining the way this individual experiences the world and what he does to help himself. I like how it's got someone's personal life and experiences in it to help others understand that they're never alone and not the only one going through it.

Every page is a part of this young man's life opened up before us that will resonate with every teenager who has Autism and help them to know that they are not alone. The Secrets of My Spectrum offers a one-of-a-kind insight into the Autism Spectrum —written by a sixteen-year-old.

I have been recommending this book to others who I feel may benefit and I know it has helped me immensely. brilliant book that is going to help many people understand autism more and help children with autism know they are not alone with not enjoying certain things that others seem to. Having an Autistic child myself, it helps me to better understand her thought process and how to possibly help her deal with them better. Teachers employers and the powers that be also,should take the time to read it to help in understanding the children and adults who have no sign of disability but suffer everyday on the inside .

It's very insightful and so interesting to hear the side of someone with autism, especially when I see my son struggle, this book has given me a better understanding as to what is going on inside his head. I'm not sure if I will be pursuing an ASD assessment just yet (at the age of 28, I'm not sure how much benefit I'd get from one), but I've found this book very helpful and comforting.With honesty and forthrightness, The Secrets of My Spectrum explores the challenges-and the great gifts-that come with living on the spectrum. I am going to suggest my son now read it to try and make him realise he is not alone with his struggles. I encourage everyone to read this to gain an insight into how people with autism live everyday and feel we can all learn to be more understanding and accommodating to all neurodivergent people. With honesty and forthrightness, The Secrets of My Spectrum explores the challenges—and the great gifts—that come with living on the spectrum. She thought I'd find it interesting as she found it enlightening (even with all her existing knowledge about ASD) and we have wondered for a little while whether I would qualify for a diagnosis of ASD.
