The neurotypical world doesn't always work for autistic people who often feel they're on the same planet but live in a different world. Autistic World Domination is here to rewrite normal. By helping readers write their own blueprint for life, this book empowers autistic people to create the world they want for themselves. This vibrant, fresh, and energetic guide blends motivational writing based on Jolene Stockman's own experiences as an autistic woman with practical exercises and actionable plans to help the reader identify who they are, what is important to them and how they might achieve their goals.
This futuristic perspective on autism weaves advice and action together and encourages readers to uncover the truth about themselves and tap into the potential of true autistic power and joy.
In Autistic World Domination, Jolene Stockman shares her hard-won wisdom as a late-diagnosed autistic person on a mission to connect with culture, community, and self. Her step-by-step process is backed by contagious enthusiasm and a deep understanding of what it means to grow up in a world that is hard to make sense of. The heart of this book lies in giving yourself permission to revise your internal narrative and how that first important step can be the launching point for maximizing your strengths and making the world around you your own.--Cynthia Kim, author of Nerdy, Shy, and Socially Inappropriate
The ultimate instruction manual for thriving while autistic, and the first book to read if you've found out you're autistic or started to suspect it. Friendly, accessible, sparkling with insight, and loaded with excellent advice.--Nick Walker, PhD, author of Neuroqueer Heresies
This book offers an empowering reframe and voice of encouragement to tap into your unique strengths and have the confidence to build a life in which you can thrive.
