This is a positive description of how it feels to be autistic and how friends, family and the professionals that work with autistic prople can be more sensitive to their needs. The author, herself autistic, perceives the creativity, imagination and keenly-felt sensory world of the autistic person, as gifts. She argues that "normalizing" autistic people - pushing them into behaving in a way that is alien to their true natures - is not just ineffective, but wrong. She challenges the reader to accept their differences and celebrate their uniqueness. This work is intended for anyone who is interested in learning more about autism, including familes and friends of autistic people, and doctors, therapists and other professionals who work with them. It should also prove a source of inspiration to autistic people themselves.
