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. 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. This really helps see things from his point of view to help understand some things he struggles with too, and has already got me thinking about possible triggers he will have for GCSE exams and college interviews etc. With honesty and forthrightness, The Secrets of My Spectrum explores the challenges—and the great gifts—that come with living on the spectrum.

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'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. 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. 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.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 read it hoping to find a book helpful for autistic teens (which it certainly is) but it really taught me something too. 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.With honesty and forthrightness, The Secrets of My Spectrum explores the challenges-and the great gifts-that come with living on the spectrum. I particularly liked the part you mentioned about describing model cars, with headlights etc, being on realistic roads following the Highway Code. 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 am going to suggest my son now read it to try and make him realise he is not alone with his struggles. 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.
