What others are saying about Am I Autistic? A Guide to Autism & Asperger’s Self-Diagnosis for Adults.
“Love the first chapter in Andal’s book which describes all the undiagnosed autistic people who have good employment. You need to read the first chapter to see how people on the spectrum are contributing greatly to society.”
– Temple Grandin, author ‘The Autistic Brain’
“Acquiring a professional diagnosis of autism is a highly complex procedure and this well researched book is one of the first of its kind in informing people of an alternative – the little known area of self-diagnosis for autistic adults. Lydia explains what autism really is, how to self-diagnose as well as the pros and cons of self-diagnosis with exceptional articulation. Highly recommended”
– Michael Barton, author ‘It’s Raining Cats and Dogs: An Autism Spectrum Guide to the Confusing World of Idioms, Metaphors and Everyday Expressions’
“At last someone in the UK who has written a positive book about autism. Usually Potential Plus UK is on its own in asking for greater focus on the things autistic people CAN do and not just on what they can’t. Whilst Lydia’s own journey will, by its nature, be very personal to her, it will make readers think of autism in a different way. I will make sure I pass on details of ‘Am I Autistic’ to our staff, volunteers and in particular our members, many of whom recognise traits like this in themselves when they come to us about their children”
– Denise Yates, Chief Executive, Potential Plus UK charity for high learning potential (gifted and talented) children and their families
