Parents groups which do their best with the limited knowledge they have, but reinforce the language, the ‘all-knowing’ information of experts, over and over and over. Autism, Identity and Me not only reflects Rebecca’s ethos, it is a structured, easy to follow, informative and invaluable text which covers all areas of autism from what it actually is through to every element of the day to day life of an autistic child. I will be using this book in my own practice." – Andrew Whitehouse, SEND Consultant, Andrew Whitehouse Ltd When you look at the numbers of Autistic teenagers that self harm or try to kill themselves, 28 times more like than their peers.

It’s a positive book, the illustrations being done by someone who is autistic is brilliant, and I like the autistic people section near the end." – Lynn McCann , Autism & PDA Specialist Teacher & Author, Reachout ASC If we break it, we need to fill the vacuum and replace it and this is where the Neurodiversity Paradigm comes in.Currently we live in a world that thinks it right and proper that Autism is seen as a thing, a part of an Autistic person.

For a long time now the only thing that Humanity has really had left to fear is itself and the consequence of it’s own actions. The TST (Kuhn & McPartland 1954) is a measure used to assess how individuals define themselves using their own words. The task requires participants to respond to the question ‘Who am I?’ by writing down up to 20 statements beginning with “I am”, in a way that best defines their identity (e.g. ‘I am a thrill-seeker’, ‘I am autistic’). Each response was coded according to a coding scheme used by Rhee et al. ( 1995), which provided three separate scores for each participant: identity strength, identity complexity and identity quality. Identity strength was the total number of statements produced, up to a maximum of 20. Identity complexity was the number of different categories produced, out of a possible seven (social identity, physical descriptions, personal identity, personal qualities, interests and activities, relationships and environment). Identity quality was the proportion of specific items (i.e. qualified with some specific detail; e.g. ‘I am a brother’) divided by the total number of items reported. Marcia’s ( 1980) identity theory posits that well-developed identity comprises of a sense of one’s strengths and weaknesses (captured by identity strength and complexity scores), and one’s individual uniqueness (captured by identity quality score), therefore all three scores were included in the analysis to capture personal identity. The Conversation’ is published in conjunction with 79 universities full of the next generation of professionals who will be working in the field of Autism.

Well neurology is the science that looks at how the brain works and cognition is how that brain processes, disseminates and acts upon the information it receives, so when we talk about Autistic Neurology and Autistic cognition, we’re talking about the process of how the brain actually works. Similarly with all marginalised and minority groups – it’s the fact that you are marginalised and a minority that makes your identity even more important.Mendip House in Somerset was run by a male “gang” who threw cake at residents and forced them to fund staff meals out.
