I Am Autistic - Author Talk with Chanelle Moriah
Wednesday 29 June
Free Entry - Koha Welcome
When Chanelle was diagnosed with autism at 21, life finally began to make sense.
Hungry for information, Chanelle looked for a simple resource that could explain what autism is and how it can impact the different areas of an autistic person's life, but found that there was little written from the perspective of someone who is autistic.
So Chanelle decided to create that missing resource.
Chanelle discovered just how difficult it can be for autistic adults - particularly females or those assigned female at birth - to be diagnosed or even be assessed for autism. This is partly because there is very little understanding of the different ways autism can present itself.
I Am Autistic helps people feel less alone in their autism and brings knowledge to an often-misunderstood condition.
The book will be available for sale on the night.
