This book has been over a year in the making, and represents a lifetime of lessons learned, creative ideas, and major insights when it comes to communicating on the autism spectrum. Larry and I hope it can be a valuable resource for anybody who needs help knowing what to say next! :D
Here's some advance praise we got for the book, from some very lovely people we are very grateful to know:
"This remarkable book offers not only a roadmap for skillful professional communication, but also a unique glimpse inside the complex autistic mind.
One of the book’s strengths is its goal of bidirectional growth – helping a person on the autism spectrum adapt to the workplace, and also helping others in the workplace welcome and empower their autistic coworker.
I am left with a profound respect for the immense effort people on the spectrum exert to process social nuances. If neurotypicals exerted even half of this energy to understand autistics, the workplace – and world – would be much more welcoming."
—Diana Robins, Ph.D., Director of the A. J. Drexel Autism Institute at Drexel University
"Effective comprehension of written, spoken and non-verbal language hinges on one’s ability to accurately process, interpret and apply words, phrases, context and semantics. No easy feat if you are on the spectrum.
Building from their own experiences as a neurodiverse couple, the Nannerys offer readers insight, analysis and adaptable strategies that culminate into an invaluable resource for autistics searching to establish meaningful and successful interpersonal and professional communications.
But at its core, this book is a great instruction manual for anyone interested in building good communication skills in this ever changing world we live in."
