Our Autistic Lives: Personal Accounts from Autistic Adults Around the World

by Alex Ratcliffe Editor

An anthology of narratives from autistic adults ranging from age 20 through age 70+. Though these stories are diverse in perspectives—spanning different genders, continents, sexualities, and ethnicities—they all share a unifying theme. Editor Alex Ratcliffe, who has 12 years of experience working with autistic folks, structured these narratives to show what the challenges are as the autistic mind ages, thus helping to foster patience, compassion, and understanding by creating a bridge between neurotypical and neurodiverse people.
