Understanding My Life As an Autistic
Author: Paul Louden
View: 318Do you have any idea what it's like to be a person with autism in 2017? If the answer is no, then you're not alone. Most people have no idea what it feels like to be autistic. In fact, parents, siblings, high school teachers and college professors all admit to an amazing lack of understanding about autism and communication with people on the spectrum. Some may have had difficulties understanding a non-verbal child with autism. Others may have a brother with whom they wish communication would be more fulfilling. And in the classroom or the workplace, some might encounter students or employees who need accommodations to get their work done. Behind The Locked Door is a guide to understanding autism. And it will help readers more effectively communicate with people on the spectrum. Written for parents, educators, employers and for people eager to learn more about autism and disabilities, this book gives readers: - Practical insights into handling challenging communications barriers with people on the spectrum. - Insight into difficulties in life for people on the spectrum, including hygiene, social situations, speaking, motivation, trouble at school and work, and more. - Actionable steps for enjoying more successful relationships with people who have autism. - Behavioral techniques used by parents to help their children on the spectrum live a better life. Paul Louden has spent his entire life preparing to let the public inside the mind of a person with autism. Paul is a public speaker, radio show host, autism advocate and a 34-year-old man with autism. He works tirelessly to help educators, employers and parents better the lives of people with autism.
