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 was 16 and wanted to help other kids like me to know they’re not alone and give them something to show their parents.

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.

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

The Secrets of My Spectrum offers a one-of-a-kind insight into the Autism Spectrum —written by a sixteen-year-old.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. I am going to suggest my son now read it to try and make him realise he is not alone with his struggles.

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 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'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. Please remember it can take some time for your bank or credit card company to process and post the refund too. With honesty and forthrightness, The Secrets of My Spectrum explores the challenges—and the great gifts—that come with living on the spectrum.

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

Teachers employers and the powers that be also,should take the time to read it to help in understanding the children and adults who have no sign of disability but suffer everyday on the inside . With honesty and forthrightness, The Secrets of My Spectrum explores the challenges-and the great gifts-that come with living on the spectrum. I have been recommending this book to others who I feel may benefit and I know it has helped me immensely.
