educational, concise and truly accessible... a much-needed addition to the ASD-field.
A timely and essential read for everyone who thinks that they or a family member may be autistic, and for everyone who has recently found out that they or a family member are autistic. It should also become essential reading for professionals working within the field.
This is the book I've been waiting for; it will now be on the top of our recommended reading list. It should be essential reading on any training course, and it is particularly helpful for anyone thinking about embarking on seeking, or having recently received, a diagnosis for themselves or their child.
"This is a lovely book. Dr Beardon writes with humanity, sensitivity and understanding. Both beguilingly simple and profound, this book is readable and accessible yet asks - and answers - some unusual and complex questions. If more of us were to read it, it could quite simply enable a generation of autistic children to be happy with who they are."
"This lovely book... is scholarly, accessible and respectful. Luke has years of valuable experience and is always thinking and learning about autism. His is a refreshing and honest voice in the field."
