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.

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. The Secrets of My Spectrum offers a one-of-a-kind insight into the Autism Spectrum —written by a sixteen-year-old. 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.I have been recommending this book to others who I feel may benefit and I know it has helped me immensely. 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. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. I was 16 and wanted to help other kids like me to know they’re not alone and give them something to show their parents.

It is a well written personal account explaining the way this individual experiences the world and what he does to help himself. 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. I particularly liked the part you mentioned about describing model cars, with headlights etc, being on realistic roads following the Highway Code. This book was written in plain English, and very much from the perspective of actual personal situations. 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.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'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. 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.I am going to suggest my son now read it to try and make him realise he is not alone with his struggles.
