Suggested Reading

Here some media I have read, seen and/or have been recommended to me that I would suggest reading if you want to learn more about Autism and/or working with people who have it.  This list will be updated as I find more, so please keep checking back!  You can make some suggestions in the comments too!  

Disclaimer:  I did not write these books nor do I take credit for them. I am merely suggesting them to all of you.


Middle School: The Stuff Nobody Tells You About by Haley Moss.  (This book gave me lots of great advice for middle school, a rough time for most anyone.  Haley does a great job of sharing her experiences as a girl with high-functioning Autism in middle school.  I think the advice she gives can help beyond middle school as well.)

Take Control of Asperger's Syndrome: The Official Strategy Guide for Teens With Asperger's Syndrome and Nonverbal Learning Disorder by Janet Price and Jennifer Engel Fisher.  (I am so grateful to these woman for writing this book.  This book is a guidebook that gives practical advice about managing the challenges that come with Autism, as well as how to maximize the strengths that come with Autism.  It talks about how to make friends, advocate for yourself, how tech can help and much more.  Trust me, you won't regret reading this!)

The Way I See It by Temple Grandin.  (I deeply admire Temple Grandin.  She, herself, has Autism and she does an excellent job of explaining why people with Autism think differently, how sensory sensitivities affect a person, how to teach an Autistic person to deal with unpredictability and she even has employment ideas for Autistic people.  She explains much, much more and shares her own experiences.  She is very inspiring to me and I think you'll be inspired by her too.)
