Summary
Willey, an autism consultant, researcher, and author of books on autism spectrum disorder, recounts how she grew up as undiagnosed with Asperger's syndrome, and was later diagnosed as an adult. She describes her childhood and experiences at school, the coping strategies she developed, her teen years and relationships with peers, her college and graduate school years, her husband and children, and additional information on her experiences since the last edition, when she received her official diagnosis. She includes appendices on how to explain the condition to others, survival skills for college students, employment options and responsibilities, tips for organizing home life, coping strategies for sensory perception problems, and strategies for supporting people with Asperger's.
