Reviews

An absolute "must read" not only for parents and families but for physicians and professionals as well who work with Autistic Youth. Dr Manassis offers a book that is easy to read as well as comprehensive and based on the latest research with multiple references. She addresses the challenging realities of the transition to adulthood in ASD offering pragmatic solutions that inspire and motivate the reader. I wholeheartedly recommend it!--Jake Pyne, Assistant Professor, York University School of Social Work
Trans and Autistic: Stories from Life at the Intersection opens with the disability community maxim "Nothing About Us Without Us"... and more than lives up to its promise. In these ten chapters, authors Noah Adams and Bridget Liang bring the reader into ten autistic trans worlds that span the ordinary and the extraordinary. Refusing to play the part of the spectacle, what Adams and Liang offer is deceptively simple - a set of vital voices rarely heard on their own terms.--Jake Pyne, Assistant Professor, York University School of Social Work
