Description

Whether we're aware of it or not, we will all know an autistic person, which makes this exciting new book an essential read for all.




Language experts Zanne Gaynor and Kathryn Alevizos and autism consultant Joe Butler, combine their knowledge and experience in this unique and accessible guide to more inclusive communication in a neurodiverse world.




Every autistic person experiences differences in communication. A lack of recognition of this can lead to miscommunication and heightened anxiety for many autistic people. Is That Clear? recognises and addresses this by offering practical tips, which have all been reviewed and endorsed by autistic readers.




Condensed into bite-sized chapters, the book covers key areas from instructions and questions to figurative speech, the pitfalls of small talk and phone calls - and much more.




A highly recommended read that sensitively promotes inclusion and diversity.

Review quote

At long last, here's a book that acknowledges how

confusing non-autistic people can be for us autistics and

supports and empowers them to make their communications

with us more successful. This is a practical guide that urges

non-autistic people to evaluate the way they interact with us to

reduce confusion.




- Dean Beadle, autistic speaker/trainer, writer and singer




Anyone reading this guide should be able to easily take on

board the recommendations and implement them into day

to day life. Those who are able to make adjustments will

definitely support more effective two-way communication.

Emma Chantler, Autism Education Trust




Nice to see publications like this being produced, that take a

respectful approach to communication with autistic people.

Dr Damian Milton




A book like this is incredibly validating and will not only

make for better communication between autistic and allistic

people, but will change the way that people see and respect

how autistic people communicate. It's such an important

book and twists the narrative on its head, so thank you.

Erin Ekins




This book really helps you realise how much further we all

have to go to make it a truly accessible society. It should be

handed out in every establishment in the country!

Geoffrey Hames




As the parent of an autistic son, this is enlightening - an

essential read that opens our eyes to the power and

importance of kind, considered, effective communication.

Jane (and Jamie) Lush




I like the way this book's broken down - really useful for

many of the people I see on our autism in the workplace

training who are developing their understanding of autism.

Lorraine MacAlister, National Autistic Society




This all looks great and seems very well thought out and

presented and was very easy to follow. I hope it does well

and makes a positive difference. It was helpful without

feeling patronising - a breath of fresh air.
