In Asperger’s on the Inside, Michelle Vines shares deeply personal stories from her life. Always light and charming, Vines takes us on her journey from childhood to adulthood as a neurodiverse person in a neurotypical, male-centric world.
Growing up unaware of the nature of her differences, Vines gives her before and after perspectives on her personal relationships, academic career, professional life and more. This is a must-read for anyone new to learning about their own neurodiversity.
In a time when autistic women’s narratives are relatively few, Vines’ offers kinship and provides a window into the broader autistic experience.
Michelle Vines is an Australian author, mother, chemical and environmental engineer, and autism advocate. She confirmed her neurodiversity with a diagnosis of Asperger’s Syndrome at thirty years of age.Twitter: @aspieotinside
