How to Human with Autism & Understand Its Many Intricacies

by Joe Biel, Faith G. Harper, PhD, LPC-S, ACS and ACN

A autism primer by an autistic person for autistic people (co-written with a trusted therapist)!

If you're an autistic adult, there probably hasn't been a whole lot of guidance or community out there for you past the age of 18 or so. Joe Biel writes about what it's like to be autistic (anyone who knows an autistic person can really benefit from reading this!). Dr. Faith writes about what it's like to care for autistic folks, based on her experience as a parent, friend, and therapist. The zine covers diagnostic criteria and how they play out in practice, what it means for autism to be a disability, and co-occurring symptoms, like depression and anxiety. Then it gets into life skills and social skills that a neurotypical world doesn't always think to teach autistic people. So we get to teach each other.
