Description

The Limpsfield girls certainly found their voice and it has all the urgency, immediacy and sheer vibrancy of teenage life... I hope that M's journey will help girls with autism making that same journey through their early teen years to find themselves and believe in themselves as well as help others understand and believe in them. --Robert Pritchett, Director Autism Accreditation, The National Autistic Society Does your child play pretend or make-believe? ( For Example, pretend to drink from an empty cup, pretend to talk on a phone, or pretend to feed a doll or stuffed animal?) It's something you're born with. Signs of autism might be noticed when you're very young, or not until you're older.

Avoiding childhood vaccinations can place your child and others in danger of catching and spreading serious diseases, including whooping cough (pertussis), measles or mumps. Risk factors M is for Autism invites us into the world of a young woman with autism and allows us to view it through her lens. What an intriguing world we enter. This is a book to be read by everyone! -- Professor Barry Carpenter, OBE, PhD, University of Worcester Because people think autism is something only boys have – and because girls with autism behave completely differently to boys – girls have to constantly mask their condition,” Warren added. “But having to pretend to be someone else is debilitating and humiliating. And it doesn’t even work: people can get annoyed with you even when you mask [because they sense your inauthenticity].”

What an intriguing world we enter. This is a book to be read by everyone! Reading how life is with Autism as a teenager from an inside perspective is priceless. I've always said the best way to understand Autistic people is to talk to them and let them tell how it is. M does that in this book. I am a woman, a wife, a mother, a friend, a Top Ranked Book Reviewer and have my own Book Publicity business... If you're finding it hard to get an assessment, you could ask to speak to someone else, like another GP – this is called getting a second opinion.

I am utterly in love with this book. Part secret journal, part Perks of Being a Wallflower, part every girl, part just-like-me (yep, I have always seen letters as having personalities!), M is for Autism is a secret gem. We all need to know, after all, that there IS a "Sisterhood of the Spectrum". And I'm proud to say that M fits in perfectly! Has problems with coordination or has odd movement patterns, such as clumsiness or walking on toes, and has odd, stiff or exaggerated body language taking things very literally – for example, you may not understand sarcasm or phrases like "break a leg" Some autistic people need little or no support. Others may need help from a parent or carer every day. Some people use other names for autism Has specific food preferences, such as eating only a few foods, or refusing foods with a certain textureStatistics appear to show that more men and boys than women and girls have a diagnosis of autism. The study most quoted, written by Leo Kanner in 1943, found there were four times as many boys as girls. In later years various studies, together with anecdotal evidence, put the men to women ratio at anything from 2:1 to 16:1.

Warren sits with her friends in the office of Sarah Wild, the headteacher at Limpsfield Grange. Fizzing with as many different opinions as any other group of teenage girls, they only speak with one voice when it comes to the question of whether boys with autism have an easier life. Understanding and education are key to us all getting along and I think this book should be in every school library and all children, autistic or not, should be encouraged to read this book and it's sequel which I've not yet read but intend to. M is for Autism is a book about a teenage girl with Autism written by teenage girls with Autism. This is an amazing book that shares daily trials of a girl with autism to give us a realistic understanding of what she feels and is trying to deal with. If you've ever wondered about the struggle someone with autism is dealing with, take a peek into the thoughts of M. Does your child make unusual finger movements near his or her eyes?
