ASK AND TELL: Self-Advocacy and Disclosure for People on the Autism Spectrum

edited by Stephen Shore
foreword by Temple Grandin

This book provides concrete, applicable advice from successful autistic people, who have been there and know what they’re talking about. Each chapter is written by a different author:

  • Ruth Elaine Joyner Hane wrote “Communicating Through Advocacy and Self-Disclosure: Four Ways to Connect”
  • Kassiane Sibley wrote “Help Me Help Myself: Teaching and Learning”
  • Stephen M. Shore wrote “Using the IEP to Build Skills in Self-Advocacy and Disclosure” (Parents and teachers should definitely read this chapter!)
  • Roger N. Meyer wrote “Being Your Own Case Manager”
  • Phil Schwartz wrote “Building Alliances: Community Identity and the Role of Allies in Autistic Self-Advocacy”
  • Liane Holliday Willey wrote “Disclosure and Self-Advocacy: An Open Door Policy”

There is a lot of useful information here, from people who understand the issues involved in ways that neurotypical allies cannot. I definitely recommend it.
