Three well-known autistic mothers offer advice and wisdom based on their experiences having and raising children. This book offers valuable insights, knowledge and wisdom on parenting autistic and non-autistic children. Three mothers reflect on their experiences of growing up as undiagnosed autistics, venturing into and embracing motherhood, and connecting with their children in a unique and powerful way. They offer advice on overcoming the challenges of parenting when you are autistic, such as socialising with other parents or sensory issues that come with excessive touch. Reflecting on their own experiences, they also emphasize the positives of being an autistic parent to an autistic child, such as understanding of why their child is struggling or the openmindedness that can come from not being constrained by societal norms. They also explain how out-of-the-box thinking leads to creative parenting of non-autistic children, forming strong and loving bonds. Full of wit and warm advice, this book empowers autistic parents and reassures them that autism is a strength in raising their children with love, knowledge and experience, while also giving non-autistic parents and professionals a fresh perspective on helping autistic children to thrive.

Finding Your Fashion
THE IMPORTANCE OF
Don’t be afraid to create your own uniform. I’ve found a simple and timeless style that works for me. I gravita te towards black, which means 99% of my clothe s are black. I wear black Levi high-waisted slim jeans that I wash over and over until they’re really soft. I wear a selection of classic sweats hirts that are made of highquality ultra-soft cotton . I’ve found that sweats hirts are more versatile than people give them credit for. I have some that have a weave that makes them look like sweaters and some that have a lace overlay , making them trendier than just a plain sweatshirt. Since I get cold very easily, I always layer with a cotton or velvet cardigan, hoodie or a blazer. My outfit is versati le and classic enough that I can wear it to school and also wear it to my after-school job. 23 I want to empha size that what you wear doesn’t define who you are. There are things that are so much more important, such as being kind, generous, thoughtful, accepting and forgiving. You probab ly have most of these traits in abundance. Having said that, sometimes autistic teen girls are judged by their peers for what they wear and can be mercilessly teased and bullied for it. You may want to dress in a way that helps you to blend in, so that instead of focusi ng on what you’re wearing, people can focus on your positiv e qualities, such as your sense of humor, intellig ence, honesty and trustworthine ss.

Gender Explorers Our Stories of Growing Up Trans and Changing the World Juno Roche Foreword by Susie Green, afterword by Cara English and Jay Stewart
Life-affirming interviews with young trans people who share their empowering experiences of questioning and exploring gender. In this life-affirming, heartening and refreshing collection of interviews, young trans people offer valuable insight and advice into what has helped them to flourish and feel happy in their experience of growing up trans. Speaking openly and candidly about their gender, their experiences of coming out, their aspirations, and their fears – accompanied by interviews and support from their parents and carers – this book is beautiful proof of the potential for trans children to live rich and fulfilling lives when given the support and love they need. With their trademark candour and empathy, Juno Roche gives voice to a generation of gender explorers who are making gender work for them, and in the process, reveals a kinder, more accepting world, that we should all be fighting for.
Just to be completely crystal clear and not leave a single shred or sliver of doubt in anyone’s mind as to why I’m writing this book, ‘I believe that children who are questioning and exploring their gender or simply making gender do what they need it to do in order that they can lead happy, functional and aspirational lives, are the future of this planet. They are the gender explorers and gender bosses that we all so desperately need.’ Yes, I feel as strongly as that, I believe that they are our future. These young trans and non-binary people are managing to ignore the enforced dominant script of gender in which we have no control and writing their own scripts from scratch to fit their lives. They are resolute in wanting to be the best that they can be, they want to be happy. And they want to be happy now! Just happy. – Extract from the book

Combining light-hearted anecdotes with their own hardwon wisdom, Jamie Windust explores everything from fashion, dating, relationships and family, through to mental health, work and future key debates. From trying on clothes in secret to iconic looks, first dates to polyamorous liaisons, passports to pronouns, Jamie shows you how to navigate the world and your evolving identity in every type of situation. Frank, funny, and brilliantly feisty, this must-read book is a call to arms for non-binary self-acceptance, self-appreciation and self-celebration.
Being non-binary, for me, means that there is no one way that I should look. Many people think that if you’re nonbinary, you have to express your gender in an androgynous manner. However, that’s simply not true, because your gender expression is limitless. There is no way in which we should look. There’s no way that any gender should look, but the binary way in which people gender themselves comes with societal pressure to conform to traditional expressions of looking one way or another. Although it’s completely valid for cis people to express their gender however they see fit, for me and many non-binary people, identifying as non-binary means that all of the arbitrary rules of how we should look just don’t exist anymore. Freedom. Gender freedom. Fashion freedom. My gender expression had always been feminine, even before I came out as non-binary. I always loved the elegance and drama of femininity. It was just so beautiful to me. I always used to think about how, when I was going out to dinner or somewhere fancy, it was infuriating that I was expected to take ten minutes to get ready. I was expected to throw on some fancy trousers and a shirt and tie, and then just be ready. I wanted to be able to take my time and have that moment of feminine elegance. When I was fourteen or fifteen, I used to always think, ‘God, why can’t I wear a ball gown to this family meal that’s just going to be at Pizza Express?’ Seeing pop stars and film stars all glammed up on the TV made me resent the fact that I wasn’t allowed to do that. It just never sat right with me. Why wasn’t I allowed? Who was telling me I couldn’t? – Extract from the book

Gender Diversity ������������������������������������������ Gender Trauma Healing Cultural, Social, and Historical Gendered Trauma Alex Iantaffi Foreword by Meg-John Barker
An examination of the systematic, cultural and historical perpetuation of the rigid gender binary and its impact on our lives. The rigid gender binary hurts clients of all genders through historical, cultural and social trauma, which clinicians are ill-equipped to deal with due to limited resources, training and awareness.

It is cross-examined in the context of intersectional issues including trans mental health, toxic gender roles and emotional labour. Featuring case studies, exercises and reflexive practices, this is an accessible guide for professionals to understand how gender-derived trauma shows up in clinical environments. Highlighting the importance of applying a trauma-informed approach in practice, this book provides insights as to how we can work towards collective healing, for future generations and for ourselves.

Health & Social Care �������������������������������������� Social Work with Autistic People Essential Knowledge, Skills and the Law for Working with Children and Adults Yo Dunn Strategies for social workers to support and empower autistic people to live fulfilling lives in their communities. This book will help social workers and practitioners to find achievable solutions to support autistic people – including those with complex needs – to live fulfilling lives in their communities. Far too many autistic people are currently in inappropriate institutional placements, putting their basic human rights at risk and experiencing a poor quality of life. Good quality support for autistic people is achievable, even in a social care system under pressure. This book will help practitioners to develop high quality community support to facilitate discharges and prevent admissions, by providing them with effective, practical strategies to communicate with and more effectively support autistic people right across the spectrum. Common assumptions and beliefs are challenged, including the idea that ‘behaviours’ are an inevitable part of autism, and practical approaches are offered to promote autonomy, respect for human rights and empathy with autistic perspectives as a basis for preventing distressed behaviour. This will enable practitioners to support and empower all autistic people to achieve a good quality of life in their communities.

From their experiences, Sara looks to capture those pockets of brilliance that families have encountered, and which outstanding practitioners have pioneered, for us all to learn from.

Wellbeing Hack 1: Name your emotions How do you stop yourself from acting on those heart-stopping surges of basorexia? And when was the last time you felt awumbuk…I mean really felt it deep down in your soul? So, I’m assuming you didn’t know that basorexia is feeling a sudden urge to kiss someone, and awumbuk is feeling empty after guests have left your home. But just because you hadn’t heard of them, does that mean you’ve never felt them? How about something simpler, like sadness? If you had never heard of the word sad, could you still feel sad? And, if you could, how would you know that you were feeling sad? It wasn’t until you were about two years old that two parts of your brain – the dorsolateral cortex and anterior cingulate – started to mature, and these are the drivers of verbal fluency. Only at this point did you begin to use words as symbols to represent your feelings. And this is huge. Gradually you were able to direct your attention towards how you were feeling. You could think about your emotions rather than simply experiencing them. – Extract from the book
