Fifteen Things They Forgot to Tell You About Autism

by Debby Elley - £12.99  Jessica Kingsley Publishers (2018)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781785924385 | ISBN 10: 1785924389

Alec and Bobby are twins with autism, but nobody could ever say they are the same. Here, their mum gives a down-to-earth account of their family life, proving that autism is not one-size-fits-all. This honest and funny book shares experience and advice, and most of all, it celebrates family life that touches on all points of the autism spectrum.
 
What if the things people need to know about autism is not the information they're getting? Combining myth-busting advice with personal experience, this book from the mother of autistic twins shares simple strategies to build children's confidence, communication, and independence.
 
From sharing the joy of yodelling around shops at the weekend, to finding creative ways to communicate with both her verbal and her non-verbal sons, Debby Elley gives practical and fun tips for everyday living and shows that being autistic is just another way of being. Both witty and candid, the book discusses labels, meltdowns, acceptance, happiness and much more.
