The Secret Life of Rose covers a range of topics that are central to the autistic experience. While Rose writes peer-to-peer, her mum Jodie adds the perspective of an adult who is also a professional in the field. The end result is a book that opens up the autistic experience in a way that is both fresh and accessible.
This is an updated and expanded edition based on a successfully self-published version, offering new content on burnout, shutdown and monotropism.
