31 stories of Independent Autism
Seven years have passed since the successful release of Come into My World: 31 Stories of Autism in Singapore (wwww.come-into-my-world.com). As her autistic son grew into a young adult, author Brenda Tan began to wonder – where are the autistic adults? Do we not see them because they are hidden at home? Or have they adapted so well that they are indistinguishable from neurotypicals? How do autistic persons achieve independence? The curiosity grew into an earnest desire to seek out these individuals-autistic adults who enjoy a career or are married. The quest culminated in this treasured collection of real accounts from 15 countries, as 31 autistic adults share candidly their life journey towards independence and beyond.
