Spectrum women have a voice that needs to be heard. They need people to understand the challenges they face in daily life, and to recognise their talents and many achievements. The coherent explanations and wise advice provided in this book are highly recommended for women with ASD, their families and clinicians. --Tony Attwood, PhD, Adjunct Professor at Griffith University, Queensland and author of The Complete Guide to Asperger's Syndrome and Asperger's Syndrome: A Guide for Parents and Professionals.
By far this is the best book I have read about autistic females. As an autistic woman, wife and mother to a daughter on the spectrum, this book is such a treat. This book gives a sense of belonging, packed full of valuable information, honest insights and great advice, wrapped beautifully together with Dr Michelle Garnett's supporting views. The 15 autistic authors share their personal experiences, covering many aspects of life for fellow Spectrum Women from disclosure, sensory issues, communication, health, anxiety, self-care to relationships, parenthood and employment. It's the full package. Spectrum Women: Walking to the beat of Autism will help so many autistic women around the world and will be valuable information to partners, parents and professionals. Together this tribe of truly amazing women (my autism mentors) have written an absolutely brilliant masterpiece. You are my Dream Team, ladies. --Anne Skov Jensen, autism advocate, public speaker and a proud spectrum sister
Spectrum Women: Walking to the Beat of Autism brings us the voice of spectrum women, adding multi-faceted layers of Autism knowledge previously unavailable to Professionals and lay people alike. Throughout the chapters the writers not only share their lives, but often bare the intimate recesses of their souls with the reader. This book marks a pivotal moment in the history of Autism - we now have a definitive resource on Autistic women available to us. --Nelle Frances, founder of AspergerChild
15 autistic women give empowerment, advice, support and insight to fellow autistic women, with clinical commentary from a specialistSee all Product description

I was gripped reading this book like a child again escaping into my own world as a young autistic in a very unapologetic and confusing world around me at times! The book covers important topics in the book such as parenting, mental health, masking and vulnerabilities and the positives of having autism or aspergers and what the special intense focus of special interests or passions can bring to the workplace, school and university and creativities to be utilised successfully into the world around us.
Each chapter I could relate to as the younger and evolved and older me sharing similar experiences each step of the way with this generation of autistic women and girls. It was a real rollercoaster ride of emotions during reading it! A very inspiring book for ladies who have been on a similar journey through life. Congratulations to these valuable autistic women for sharing their experiences however painful and brutally honest and humble too.
This is a fresh, honest book written by women speaking from experience. On a personal note I am also a women with a child with autism. Who knows if maybe I also am a "spectrum woman".
This book gives maybe a person thinking of following through a personal diagnosis the benefits of doing this. It also has empowered me to continue being a confident parent and as the book says "trust my own instincts."
Well done to the writers and all involved in putting this book together and please write more!
I read a lot of books about autism and tend to prefer books written by people with personal experience. I would compare this book with the likes of Temple Grandins "The stories I tell my friends" or Henry Normals " a Normal Family".
best wishes and proud to put my name to having read this book
In this book 16 women come together (not 15?) from around the world to pool their knowledge and share their personal and professional experiences of the cluster of behaviours that is currently labelled ‘high functioning autism or Aspergers’
I felt excited and empowered by this book.
If you download a sample from Amazon, don’t be put off by an unusual and bouncy introduction, read on. A brilliant oasis of inspiration, thank you so much, I needed this!
