What I Mean When I Say I’m Autistic:
Unpuzzling a Life on the Autism Spectrum
by Annie Kotowicz
Welcome inside the mind of an autistic woman! In this mix of memoir and manifesto, I share the trials and triumphs of a life before and after diagnosis.
Have you ever wondered…
- How might it feel to be autistic? Or, if you’re autistic, what words can you use to help others understand?
- Why are autistic and non-autistic people so puzzling to one another?
- How does neuroscience explain the spectrum of autistic traits?
- And what could you discover about your own mind – neurotypical or neurodivergent – through learning about another?
This book is for you if…
You are autistic – or might be – and want help with describing your brain, improving your life, and seeing the beauty of autism.
You love an autistic person, work with autistic people, or otherwise are familiar with autism, and want to nurture those relationships.
You’re unfamiliar with autism, and want a simple but nuanced introduction from someone with personal experience.
From the Author
I’ve poured my heart and mind into What I Mean When I Say I’m Autistic, drawing on stories I’ve written as Neurobeautiful along with memories I’ve never shared before.
I hope this book will give insight and encouragement to every person who wants to understand autism better. It’s an analysis of my autistic thinking, a guide to autistic thriving, and a celebration of autistic brains.
