I am starting to get emails from counselors, parents and trans autistic folks and I'm glad I did all I did to make this book come out of me. It is a book that needed to be written. I will be available for presentations to professional and family groups after publishing and into 2020. Please see Services for more info. I am so grateful for the support and assistance of my professional community, friends and family who supported me through 2018 as I researched and wrote and wasn't a lot of fun to be around. Kudos to the editors at Jessica Kingsley Publishers who saw the need and worked to make this book a reality.
This concise, appropriate, necessary book offers explanations, answers and research for understanding gender differences journeyed by autistic, neurodiverse individuals. I cannot stress enough the importance of this book!
