An Adult With An Autism Diagnosis

by Gillan Drew, An Adult With An Autism Diagnosis Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download An Adult With An Autism Diagnosis books, Being diagnosed with autism as an adult can be disorienting and isolating; however, if you can understand the condition and how it affects perceptions, relationships, and your relationship with the world in general, a happy and successful life is attainable. Through an introduction to the autism spectrum, and how the Level 1 diagnosis is characterised, the author draws on personal experiences to provide positive advice on dealing with life, health, and relationships following an adult diagnosis. The effect of autism on social skills is described with tips for dealing with family and personal relationships, parenting, living arrangements, and employment. Important topics include disclosure, available resources, and options for different therapeutic routes. On reading this book, you will learn a lot more about the autism spectrum at Level 1, be able to separate the facts from the myths, and gain an appreciation of the strengths of autism, and how autism can affect many aspects of everyday life. Drawing from the author's lived experience, this book is an essential guide for all newly diagnosed adults on the autism spectrum, their families and friends, and all professionals new to working with adults with ASDs.

Experiences Of Adults Following An Autism Diagnosis

by Kristien Hens, Experiences Of Adults Following An Autism Diagnosis Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Experiences Of Adults Following An Autism Diagnosis books, This book explores adult experiences of autism diagnosis. Focusing on the experiences of 21 interviewees, the structure of the book mirrors the seven stages undergone upon diagnosis, and raises important questions about modern society and the self, amidst this life-changing news. Analysing a broad range of empirical interview data including adults who had experiences of other diagnoses, and adults who seemed to function normally before their autism diagnosis, the authors use these stories to examine how autism diagnosis can be extremely important and helpful, but also generate a great deal of negativity. Illuminating a range of testimonies that have previously been kept in the shadows, this book will not only appeal to students and scholars of autism in adults, but also to practitioners as well as adults who have been diagnosed with autism.

I Think I Might Be Autistic

by Cynthia Kim, I Think I Might Be Autistic Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download I Think I Might Be Autistic books, What if instead of being weird, shy, geeky or introverted, your brain is wired differently? For adults with undiagnosed autism spectrum disorder (ASD), there is often an "aha!" moment--when you realize that ASD just might be the explanation for why you've always felt so different. "I Think I Might Be Autistic: A Guide to Autism Spectrum Disorder Diagnosis and Self-Discovery for Adults" begins from that "aha!' moment, addressing the many questions that follow. What do the symptoms of ASD look like in adults? Is getting a diagnosis worth it? What does an assessment consist of and how can you prepare for it? Cynthia Kim shares the information, insights, tips, suggestions and resources she gathered as part of her own journey from "aha!" to finally being diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome in her forties. This concise guide also addresses important aspects of living with ASD as a late-diagnosed adult, including coping with the emotional impact of discovering that you're autistic and deciding who to share your diagnosis with and how.

Download Nerdy Shy And Socially Inappropriate books, Cynthia Kim explores all the quirkyness of living with Asperger Syndrome (ASD) in this accessible, witty and honest guide looking from an insider perspective at some of the most challenging and intractable aspects of being autistic. Her own life presents many rich examples. From being labelled nerdy and shy as an undiagnosed child to redefining herself when diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome as an adult, she describes how her perspective shifted to understanding a previously confusing world and combines this with the results of extensive research to explore the 'why' of ASD traits. She explains how they impact on everything from self-care to holding down a job and offers typically practical and creative strategies to help manage them, including a section on the vestibular, sensory and social benefits of martial arts for people with autism. Well known in the autism community and beyond for her popular blog, Musings of an Aspie, Cynthia Kim's book is rich with personal anecdotes and useful advice. This intelligent insider guide will help adults with ASDs and their partners, family members, friends, and colleagues, but it also provides a fresh and witty window onto a different worldview.

Ich Bin Autistin Aber Ich Zeige Es Nicht Leben Mit Dem Asperger Syndrom

by Liane Holliday Willey, Ich Bin Autistin Aber Ich Zeige Es Nicht Leben Mit Dem Asperger Syndrom Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Ich Bin Autistin Aber Ich Zeige Es Nicht Leben Mit Dem Asperger Syndrom books, Einfach ein großartiges Buch: Die Tochter erhält die Diagnose Asperger und die Mutter erkennt sich - endlich - in dieser Diagnose wieder. Sie beschreibt im Rückblick ihre Lebensgeschichte und reflektiert es nun in Kenntnis der Asperger-Diagnose. Ernst, lustig und voller Anekdoten. Dabei immer spannend, denn man wartet darauf, wie der nächste Lebensabschnitt bis zur Hochschullehrerin mit drei Kindern verlaufen wird - und welchen Anteil das Asperger-Syndrom dabei hat. Ein Extrakapitel widmet sie den Ereignissen, als Asperger-Autistin Kinder zu haben. Sehr offen, in klaren Worten und schnörkellos beschrieben - und dabei doch sehr ins Detail gehend. Sie beschreibt Gefühle intensiver, als so mancher Mensch ohne Asperger. Sie muss die Gefühle für sich genau beschreiben, um sie zu verstehen. "Auch wenn es 38 Jahre lang gedauert hat - ich kann gar nicht deutlich genug sagen, was für eine Erleichterung es war, mich endlich selbst zu finden!" Ein gelungenes Ende findet das Buch mit zahlreichen Checklisten für alle Lebensbereiche. Hier gibt Liane H. Willey viele wichtige Hinweise, worauf man als Asperger-Autist achten sollte (bei der Ausbildung, der Arbeit, in Beziehungen etc.). Mit einem sehr persönlichen Vorwort von Tony Attwood Das Buch: „Meine Tochter hat Asperger!" Liane Willey hatte von dieser Krankheit noch nie gehört, und nun erfährt sie: Unter Asperger oder „High-function-Autismus" leiden viele Menschen, ohne es zu wissen - „besondere" Menschen, die zu zurückgezogenem oder egozentrischem Verhalten neigen, die oft hoch begabt sind, aber an Selbstwertproblemen, Überempfindlichkeit, Unsicherheit, Verzweiflung leiden. Sie fühlen sich mitunter wie „Ausländer im eigenen Land" oder wie „Außerirdische, die auf einem falschen Planeten gelandet sind". Die Diagnose ihrer Tochter verändert ihr Leben, denn Liane Willey begreift, dass sie seit Jahrzehnten mit den gleichen Symptomen zu kämpfen hatte: „Ich kann die Erleichterung nicht ausdrücken, die ich empfand, als ich schließlich realisierte, dass meine Tochter und ich nicht an einer Geisteskrankheit oder einer gespaltenen Persönlichkeit litten oder etwas Ähnlichem. Wir haben Asperger. Damit können wir leben! Wir können unsere Ziele und Träume erreichen, und wir können unser Leben weiterführen - mit Optimismus und Hoffnung. Wie aufregend die Erkenntnis, dass ich ganz einfach Dinge anders sehe, anders auffasse, anders empfange als andere und dass das so in Ordnung ist. Es ist meine Normalität." Liane Willey erzählt ihre Lebensgeschichte von der frühen Kindheit über die Schul- und Collegezeit bis zum Leben als Berufstätige und Mutter von drei Kindern. Sie macht deutlich, wie die Welt von einer „Aspie" erlebt wird - von den Strategien, mit denen es ihr gelang, ihren eigenen Weg zu finden, aber auch von dem oft erheblichen Leidensdruck, der damit einherging. In einem Anhang folgen praktische Hinweise „von immenser Präzision, was die Vorschläge (und Erfahrungen) angeht, im Alltag Probleme zu bewältigen, die sich einem Menschen mit Asperger-Autismus stellen" (Ulrich Rabenschlag). Ein persönliches Buch, das die Menschen, die Asperger haben - einer großen europäischen Studie zufolge in Deutschland pro Jahrgang ca. 5000 Menschen -, in ihrer Besonderheit versteht und ihnen Achtung und Sympathie entgegenbringt. Ein spannender Fallbericht nicht nur für Betroffene, sondern auch für Eltern, Erzieher, Lehrer, Psychologen und Ärzte.
