Alex Ratcliffe, ed.
“This collection of narratives from autistic adults is structured around their decades of experience of life, covering 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60 and 70s+. While these are varied and diverse, spanning different continents, genders, sexualities and ethnicities, the author highlights the common themes that unite them and skilfully draws out these threads.

Each chapter is based on accounts from one age group, giving an insight into the history of autism and signifying how gaining a diagnosis (or not) has changed people's lives over time. The book is about ageing with an autistic mind, and helping the reader find connections between neurotypical and neurodiverse people by acknowledging the challenges we all face in our past, present and futures."

Alex Ratcliffe has worked within the field of autism for over 12 years. This includes working at a senior level in special educational needs and as an assessor for an autism course. She has extensive writing, researching and interviewing experience. She identifies as being autistic (self diagnosed)
