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.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. 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. 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. I am going to suggest my son now read it to try and make him realise he is not alone with his struggles. 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. 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.

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.
