Description

He has also been a keynote speaker at NAS conference, as well as going into schools and businesses to champion change. overall it is incredibly comprehensive and a brilliant summary for anyone, as the book set out to do, looking to build a world with autistic people included in mind and looking to be aware of the inaccessibilities in our own world as it stands.

The discussions in this book are mostly based on personal experiences and experiences volunteered by the author's followers on twitter, so it's very easy to follow and is quite personable.I urge EVERYONE to read this book and try to do your bit to understand those who are autistic, as one thing is for certain - you will meet many people on the spectrum during your life and quite frankly, the more you meet the better. Its title Untypical: How The World Isn’t Built For Autistic People And What We Should All Do About It is a not-so-subtle hint at the tone of the book. I know people with autism are different, because I am struggling to relate and help someone, but this book gave me no definitive guidance as to how they’re different or to help them except to be compassionate. His book Untypical: How The World Isn’t Built For Autistic People And What We Should All Do About It is a great guide.

This can cover everything from break-times to deadlines, acceptable sick leave and if you need to bring cake in for your birthday. As Pete points out, ‘This is so frequently planted as a problem that lies squarely at the feet of the autistic person. Dla wielu z nas - o czym pisze Wharmby - small talk to koszmar, bo to oszustwo, wcale nie chodzi w nim o komunikację, a podtrzymywanie relacji społecznych, więc autor mówi, że musi się powstrzymywać, żeby na pytanie o to, jak mu minął weekend, nie powiedzieć wszystkiego, tylko podziękować za wyuczone zainteresowanie. All the information is delivered in such an easy digestable way that, as the author says, it is a great start to get to know autism and the reality of being autistic. I agree with a lot of his perspectives that others may contest (eg that autism isn't a 'superpower', although I can see that in this book some people will feel he's erred on the deficit model too much) Many will enjoy the moments of recognition (as I did the issues about shoelaces - but yeah, as another reviewer says, locking elastic laces mate!A former Spalding man hopes to increase the public’s levels of ‘compassion and kindness’ towards people with autism with the launch of his new book.

W mediach ukazuje się zakłamany obraz życia osoby atypowej, sprowadza się ją do wybitności i inteligencji, albo do ukazania szokujących meltdownów, co przecież nie jest całym obrazem tego, jak to jest być osobą autystyczną. Naar mijn academische mening zou er op het einde van een boek standaard een literatuurlijst moeten zijn, maar hier is dat niet het geval.

Misunderstanding meltdowns, dysregulation and sensory sensitivity in autistic populations can have dangerous consequences, and it is vital that autistic people’s needs are recognised by society at large. It is aimed at allistic (non-autistic) and neurotypical people, with helpful advice on how to be more autism-friendly.As well as publishing his new book, he is the author of “What I Want to Talk About: How Autistic Special Interests Shape a Life”. And please read the word "un-typical" like in the Kim Possible into melody, because that's stuck in my head now. It’s also about us as a society, as communities, coming together to make the world a more accessible and safe place for everyone.
