I like reading Temple Grandin and Daniel Tammet. I have also come across Naoki Higashida who is Japanese but it’s been translated into English. These are the most common books you will come across but there are many others written both by autistic people and those that study the condition. I would go for the personal ones if you need in-depth details of what life is like for us but the technical ones if you just need an outline of the condition.
Has this helped you gain awareness of the condition or could I do more to assist you in this area?
