Ontario Adult Autism Research and Support Network - OAARSN

Ontario Adult Autism Research and Support Network

OAARSN offers information and communication tools to connect adults with Autism, family members, caregivers, friends, support workers, teachers, administrators and policymakers. We can all benefit from the opportunities for mutual support and encouragement and the sharing of knowledge and experience. Our efforts to promote positive approaches and best practices in supporting adults with Autism can help all who live and work on the front lines.

Books on the Autism Spectrum

Which book about Autism has made the greatest impression on you? Do you know any books about adults on the Autism spectrum? Though social media may now be more popular with people living and working on the frontlines, books and articles can still be valuable resources. In 1985 Guelph Services for the Autistic published an early guide to 1164 journal articles and 94 books in Annotated Bibliography of Autism 1943-1983 by Professor Tari’s team (Guelph 1985). The one full-length book about Autism, published in Canada to that date, was Autism: New Directions in Research and Education (Pergamon Press, 1980), a collection of chapters from various points of view, that still has meaning and interest.

This page focuses on books and related media about Autism, especially those that relate to adult issues. OAARSN first launched this feature in July 2000. We reproduce a sample here to give a sense of aspects of Autism that attracted people to read books around 2000. Some books on children’s issues were included then though we tried to notice all books about adult Autism. We also reproduce a list with links of books by people on the Autism spectrum.

In 2002, Waterloo-Wellington Autism Services began its longterm support of the Autism Collection of books and other materials at the Kitchener Public Library. Please search online for those keywords to find titles including ebooks. More recently, in 2017, Guelph Services for the Autistic gave a collection of books about Autism in Adulthood to the Guelph Public Library. The list of these titles is provided below to give a sense of developing interests in adult issues.

Jessica Kingsley Publishers http://www.jkp.com/ is still the leading world publisher of Autism titles. 

This publisher of professional and academic books in the social and behavioural sciences launched over 100 new books in 2000 and has continued to publish books on every aspect of Autism as well as new titles in these categories of related interest:

  • Arts therapies
  • Disabilities and special needs
  • Psychiatry and psychotherapy
  • Social work

Books By People With Autism Spectrum Disorder Published by 2002

Commentary and lists by A M Baggs

Despite what Tony Attwood says in the introduction to Lucy’s Story (1999), Lucy’s book is not the first nor the only book by a person who has never used speech. In fact, the apparent first *ever* book by an autistic person was called Understand: Fifty Memowriter Poems (1985), by David Eastham [of Ottawa, Canada], who never used speech. Other books, published by 1999 by people who had not used speech are Forever Friends (David Eastham, 1990), A Child of Eternity (Adriana Rocha and Kristi Jorde, 1995, admittedly nonsensical), I Don’t Want To Be Inside Me Anymore (Birger Sellin, transl. 1995); In Dark Hours I Find My Way (Birger Sellin, transl. 1995); I Had No Means to Shout! (Charles Martel Hale Jr., 1999) Through the Eyes of Aliens by Jasmine Lee O’Neill was written in 1998 by someone who, while she has used speech, does no longer.

As to the impression that more books are published by female authors with Autism than male authors:  
Despite appearances, there are actually both more male autistic authors out there and more books by autistic male authors.  Only slightly, but still more.  Books by male autistic authors are, however, more likely to be written through facilitated communication (which many people thus don’t read or hear of) and more likely to go out of print.  If you factor in FC and staying in print, *then* there are more books by female autistic authors (which almost never go out of print).  The problem  is not one of books *existing*, but of books being widely distributed and read.

List of autistic authors and their books, sorted by gender 

The authors are numbered, and their books are also numbered.  It will be noticable that there are slightly more autistic male authors than autistic female authors, and slightly more books as well. This is true even if you eliminate forthcoming books and Stephen Wiltshire’s art (I included him because I think drawing is as valid a communication method as any other).

Autism Books given by GSA to Guelph Public Library in 2017 for Special Collection about Autism in Adults

Compiled from lists of “top titles” mainly published since 2012. Some reflections on the exercise of choosing these titles about adult Autism issues:

We are impressed by the range of titles about Autism Spectrum Conditions in Adults (ASC is becoming the preferred generic term for all of Autism as it is less pathological than Autism Spectrum Disorder). 

What an explosion of research and publication in the past 10 years! Great credit should go to Jessica Kingsley Publishers, celebrating its 30th year in 2017. But there’s very little about Canadian experience and innovations.

Many new books are actually by people on the Autism Spectrum; or if not, their authors are much more sensitive to the points of view of autistics themselves and more positive and respectful than in the past.

More positive emphasis is placed on a person’s gifts and circumstances, rather than trying to fix what’s wrong.  

We included some light-hearted and insightful titles such as those by Kathy Hoopmann.

Sensory issues have come into clearer focus, including in planning environments that help people to thrive. For GSA supporters and others interested in creating good homes, we recommend At home with Autism : designing housing for the spectrum / Kim Steele, Sherry Ahrentzen / Kim Steele, Sherry Ahrentzen | Policy Press | 2016.

People with more complex needs at the severe end of the spectrum are not always discussed with similar respect, notably people who cannot use their voices and who are assumed to be cognitively as well as communicatively impaired. 

While there is still a shortage of books about communication supports, the top Autism book of 2017 must be Naoki Higashida’s Fall Down 7 times Get up 8, translated by David Mitchell. Friends of GSA and Bridges: If there’s only one book about Autism you can read this year, this should be it. It’s good to report that GPL already has this book as well as Naoki’s earlier The Reason I Jump (2013).
