But you don't look autistic at all / Bianca Toeps ; translation [from the Dutch]: Fay MacCorquodale-Smith.

By: Toeps, Bianca
Contributor(s): MacCorquodale-Smith, Fay
Material type: TextTextPublisher: [The Hague, The Netherlands] : Toeps Media, 2020Description: 220 pages. 21 cmISBN: 9789090334172Subject(s): Books by autistic authors | Self-advocacy | Autistic women and girls | Understanding autism | Autobiographies and memoirs | Adult diagnosis | Adulthood | Self-esteem | Resources for people on the spectrumSummary: "Autism – that's being able to count matches really fast and knowing that 7 August 1984 was a Tuesday, right? Well, no. In this book, Bianca Toeps explains in great detail what life is like when you're autistic. She does this by looking at what science says about autism (and why some theories can go straight in the bin), but also by telling her own story and interviewing other people with autism. Bianca talks in a refreshing and sometimes hilarious way about different situations autistic people encounter in daily life. She has some useful tips for non-autistic people too: what you should do if someone prefers not to look you in the eye, why it is sometimes better to communicate by email, and, most important of all, why it is not a compliment if you say: "But you don't look autistic at all!""
