are not a lot of resources out there for us, a lot of people think that the disorder just goes away when you are an adult or that it never gets worse as you age, believe me when I say it was immensely frustrating This book is helpful to not just people who have Autism, but also to recommend to people who have to interact with Autistic people on a daily basis or hon From Netgalley for ReviewFirst

people who have to interact with Autistic people on a daily basis or honestly just anyone wishing to understand the disorder and how it presents in adults I do wish the book had an appendix or dedicated chapter with a list of resources forinformation, but even lacking that this book is very useful Again thank you for writing it received via NetGalley April 2017 read April 2017 I went through an autism book phase last year and I can t remember the details of this one I don t think it used much problematic language and was up to date with current research.There is a definite need forbooks about autistic adults, and this is a welcome addition to increase awareness of why there are undiagnosed adults and how this can be addressed.As I said, I don t remember in great detail, and it wasn t as good as Luke Beardon s received via NetGalley April 2017 read April 2017 I went through an autism book phase last year and I can t remember the details of this one I don t think it used

problematic areas, but it s on the good end of the autism book spectrum Very Interesting book and easy read I chose 5 stars because the book helped me self diagnose myself with Autism It s very easy to read and the explanations in the book were easy as well and i understood them I highlighted a lot of the book that i related to and or wanted to try for strategies to help with my Executive Functioning issues I am planning on getting an official ASD diagnosis soon I highly recommend this book This book pays much needed attention to adults on the autism spectrum, including consideration for those of us who missed being diagnosed in childhood It provides important insight into why some adults may lack official diagnosis, and makes a vital case that recognition at any age can provide valuable insight and meaning. A little repetitive, but it s so refreshing to read a book on autism that actually discusses us like we re humans and not problems to be solved Highly recommended for allistics who want to understand autism better. Wife of recently diagnosed ASD husband.This book is a must read first step in understanding Autism Spectrum Disorder The use of case studies is helpful in providing real life examples May this book help you as you learn about your loved ones beautiful mind.
