Being autistic and a teenager

A Teen Blog / Personal Development Guide

Do these questions sound familiar?

• Why am I different?
• Why is this so difficult for me?
• Is it because of my autism that I say or do that?
• Why is it so hard for me to have friends?

This teen blog/book has been specially written for autistic teenagers who read and are ready to better understand themselves.

Cove of being autistic and a teenager

Specially written

Written in the voice of an extremely relatable "created" autistic teenager, Sam, through Sam's words and experiences such as difficulties making friends and keeping friendships going, handling disagreements, personal hygiene, dealing with anxiety and emotional outbursts, and much more, your autistic teenager will realize that others share their differences and they will be excited to try Sam's advice, tips and strategies to help with their own personal challenges.

What makes this book different from any other is that Sam’s words and strategies have been created from the professional experience of an occupational therapist with 20 years of experience working with autistic children, teenagers, and adults.

“This book is a therapist/parent guide for working with autistic teenagers. The personal traits and challenges of "Sam" have been created from a compilation of "traits and challenges" of my autistic clientele in my private practice.”
Josiane Caron Santha, occupational therapist and author
