About this deal

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. 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. This book was written in plain English, and very much from the perspective of actual personal situations. With honesty and forthrightness, The Secrets of My Spectrum explores the challenges-and the great gifts-that come with living on the spectrum. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

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 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. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others.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 have been recommending this book to others who I feel may benefit and I know it has helped me immensely.

Having an Autistic child myself, it helps me to better understand her thought process and how to possibly help her deal with them better.

It is a well written personal account explaining the way this individual experiences the world and what he does to help himself. 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 read it hoping to find a book helpful for autistic teens (which it certainly is) but it really taught me something too.Please remember it can take some time for your bank or credit card company to process and post the refund too. 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.
