About this deal

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. This book was written in plain English, and very much from the perspective of actual personal situations.

Part memoir and part guidebook to gaining a deeper understanding, The Secrets of My Spectrum offers a one-of-a-kind insight into the Autism Spectrum —written by a sixteen-year-old. 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. With honesty and forthrightness, The Secrets of My Spectrum explores the challenges-and the great gifts-that come with living on the spectrum. 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.

It has given a possible explanation for many things I've wondered about, such as why I reacted a certain way as a child in certain situations, and also as an adult. I read it hoping to find a book helpful for autistic teens (which it certainly is) but it really taught me something too. At 16 I wanted to help other kids like me to know they’re not alone and give them something to show their parents if they're not feeling able to explain their struggles. When I was given books about Autism / Asperger's or watched television shows, I felt so much of what it's like to be autistic was missed out. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.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. Please remember it can take some time for your bank or credit card company to process and post the refund too. I particularly liked the part you mentioned about describing model cars, with headlights etc, being on realistic roads following the Highway Code.
