About this deal

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. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. 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. 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 have been recommending this book to others who I feel may benefit and I know it has helped me immensely.

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. 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 found I could relate very strongly to a majority of the passages in the book, both in my life currently and from my childhood. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.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 . 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. 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. The Secrets of My Spectrum offers a one-of-a-kind insight into the Autism Spectrum —written by a sixteen-year-old. With honesty and forthrightness, The Secrets of My Spectrum explores the challenges-and the great gifts-that come with living on the spectrum.

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.By using the Web site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms and Conditions. Please remember it can take some time for your bank or credit card company to process and post the refund too. 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 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 particularly liked the part you mentioned about describing model cars, with headlights etc, being on realistic roads following the Highway Code.
