I Think I Might Be Autistic by cynthia kim

What if instead of being weird, shy, geeky or introverted, your brain is wired differently? For adults with undiagnosed autism spectrum disorder (ASD), there is often an "aha!" moment--when you realize that ASD just might be the explanation for why you've always felt so different.

"I Think I Might Be Autistic: A Guide to Autism Spectrum Disorder Diagnosis and Self-Discovery for Adults" begins from that "aha!' moment, addressing the many questions that follow. What do the symptoms of ASD look like in adults? Is getting a diagnosis worth it? What does an assessment consist of and how can you prepare for it?

Cynthia Kim shares the information, insights, tips, suggestions and resources she gathered as part of her own journey from "aha!" to finally being diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome in her forties. This concise guide also addresses important aspects of living with ASD as a late-diagnosed adult, including coping with the emotional impact of discovering that you're autistic and deciding who to share your diagnosis with and how.

I identified with so much in this book. The information was presented clearly and in easily digestible chunks, with nice reviews of the main points after each section. I find this book really helpful in my self exploration and analysis.

This book is a great place to go for people who suspect they might be autistic. From plain-word examples of how autism might present in adults to a step-by-step guide through the process of self- and clinical diagnosis, as well as what comes after, this book is exactly what I needed to organize, challenge, and validate my thoughts on my own journey of self-diagnosis.
