Around one in one hundred people in the UK are autistic, and the saying goes that if you've met one autistic person, you've met one autistic person. Autistic people's personalities, differences and experiences outweigh the diagnostic criteria that link them, yet stereotypes persist and continue to inform a fundamental misunderstanding of what it is to be autistic. Rarely do autistic people get a chance to speak for themselves, but this insightful and eye-opening collection of essays, fiction, and visual art showcases the immense talents of eighteen of the world's most exciting autistic writers and artists.
