Description

I read it hoping to find a book helpful for autistic teens (which it certainly is) but it really taught me something too. 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. 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. brilliant book that is going to help many people understand autism more and help children with autism know they are not alone with not enjoying certain things that others seem to.

Having an Autistic child myself, it helps me to better understand her thought process and how to possibly help her deal with them better. 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. 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. The Secrets of My Spectrum offers a one-of-a-kind insight into the Autism Spectrum —written by a sixteen-year-old.

I have been recommending this book to others who I feel may benefit and I know it has helped me immensely. Wishing others understood autism from his perspective, the teen shares his insights, perceptions, reactions, and experiences living with autism, 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.

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. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

This book was written in plain English, and very much from the perspective of actual personal situations. 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.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. When I was given books about Autism / Asperger's or watched television shows, I felt so much of what it's like to be autistic was missed out.

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. I particularly liked the part you mentioned about describing model cars, with headlights etc, being on realistic roads following the Highway Code. 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.

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. 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. It is a well written personal account explaining the way this individual experiences the world and what he does to help himself.
