VANLIGA MÄNNISKOR: AUTISTENS GUIDE TILL GALAXEN – ORDINARY PEOPLE: THE AUTIST’S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY
By Clara Törnvall
– I am autistic. That means that people around me operate in a way that makes them say things they don’t mean, disregard agreements, fail to hyperfocus on important issues, has unreliable memory, makes strange hints and stares me right in the eye.
– So why do we say that you are the strange one?
– Because there are more of them.
THIS IS A book about neurotypicals. That is what we call people who don’t have a neuropsychiatric disability, such as autism or ADHD/ADD. They are not always easy to understand.
This book is for you with experience of autism and who wants to learn how to decode the ordinary people better. Their world is odd, but they seldom view themselves as deviants.
THE BOOK IS a fun eye-opener that flips the perspectives with the help of facts, tips, glossary, tests and input from young autistic people.
Richly illustrated by Anneli Furmark!
