Our Autistic Lives: Personal Accounts from Autistic Adults Around the World Aged 20 to 70+

by Alex Ratcliffe (Editor) - £14.99  Jessica Kingsley Publishers (2020)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781785925603 | ISBN 10: 1785925601

This collection of narratives from autistic adults is structured around their decades of experience of life, covering 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60 and 70s+. These are varied and diverse, spanning different continents, genders, sexualities and ethnicities, yet the author highlights the common themes that unite them and skilfully draws out these threads.
 
Each chapter is based on accounts from one age group and includes accounts from people of that age, giving an insight into the history of autism and signifying how gaining a diagnosis (or not) has changed people's lives over time. The book is about ageing with an autistic mind, and helping the reader find connections between neurotypical and neurodiverse people by acknowledging the challenges we all face in our past, present and futures.
