Description - Autism: An Inside-Out Approach by Donna Williams

Challenging the stereotypes that surround the condition that is called "autism", this book goes beyond the outsider's view of the symptoms by presenting the many different faces of autism and autism-related conditions from the insider's perspective. Based on her own experiences of autism, the author looks at the misinterpretations and assumptions that have grown up around the condition, and offers her own experience of the daily problems and frustrations that the autistic person faces, and an overview of the current techniques, therapies and treatments for autism. She illustrates what autism means in her life, and shows how the experience of having to learn in different ways to others is a positive experience that opens up new ways of thinking.

Author Biography - Donna Williams

Donna Williams was born in Australia in 1963 and raised in a working-class inner-city area in Australia. She grew up hearing words such as 'deaf', 'disturbed', 'crazy' and 'spastic', and like many able people with autism born in the 1960s and earlier, she wasn't formally diagnosed with autism until adulthood. As well as writing, composing, painting and sculpting, she lectures and runs workshops on autism all around the world. Donna is also the author of four autobiographies - Nobody Nowhere, Somebody Somewhere, Like Colour to the Blind and Everyday Heaven - along with several other books on autism, Autism and Sensing, Exposure Anxiety, The Jumbled Jigsaw (forthcoming) and a collection of her poetry, Not Just Anything: A Collection of Thoughts on Paper. These books are also published by and available from Jessica Kingsley Publishers. Her first international best-selling autobiography, Nobody Nowhere, is currently under option by a Hollywood film company. After 13 years in the UK, she now lives back in Australia with her husband Chris.
