'Luke has years of valuable experience, and is always thinking and learning about autism' - Professor Nicola Martin

Have you recently been diagnosed as autistic?
Do you suspect you might be autistic?

If you've recently been diagnosed as autistic, think you may be or are close to someone who is, one of the things you will like most about this book is the way in which it challenges the idea of autism as a 'disorder' or 'impairment'.

Instead, Dr Luke Beardon will help you to reframe what you feel, and challenge what you know, about being on the spectrum. He explains how autism impacts on the individual, and what purpose a diagnosis might - or might not - serve. There is a lot of myth-busting, and dismantling of the stereotypes and clichés around ASD and areas like communication, social interaction and relationships. Practical tips for undiagnosed adults will help you navigate things like school, work, study, parenthood and even to understand what happens when autistic people break the law.

Above all, this book is a celebration of what it means to be autistic - of the passion, honesty, humour, lack of ego, loyalty and trustworthiness that make you, or your loved one, such an amazing person.
