I was wondering, if we could somehow as a group, contrive to write a book for people who hear one of the two the A words for the first time, at an inconvenient time in their lives.
I thought perhaps we could precede it with a kind of "differential diagnosis" process over a few months, so as we come up with a tome that suits all emerging Autists.
But the effort would need some structuring and require some leadership, and possibly even access to different parts of the software that drives this forum or certainly a greater understanding of how better we can use it as a collaborative tool. It's beyond me as a solo effort, and I suspect many of us.
I think if we got it into the hands of the NHS, so that on the way home from your diagnosis, you could be reassured that there is a better future waiting for you, and be shown some practcial steps to get going in the right direction it would make the news a bit easier to take for some of us. We could include a section on metal ju-jitsu too, for when the normies do that thing they do...
I'll bet with a well written "go-fund me", we could easily cover physical printing and worldwide distribution costs.
I've read online books written by autistics describing how NTs behave and how to fit into their world. I have found these books very useful.
A good book was written by Marc Segar, unfortunately the link to it doesn't work anymore.
A SURVIVAL GUIDE FOR PEOPLE WITH ASPERGER SYNDROME
Is the book.
GOOD MAN!! Printing that off now. Looks mighty handy after a quick scan.
He might even have done the book already! Glad I started this thread.
