Finding Your Superpowers: How to Discover and Nurture Strengths and Personal Interests intentionally mimics and uses popular images of superheroes. The book is a quick read with a fun and approachable format for a wide age range. The author has extensively interviewed families and experts, including talking/consulting directly with adults on the spectrum and has included examples, stories from individuals and families, as well as resources and further information resources in the text. At the end of each chapter the reader can note their discoveries.
Additionally, the focus of this book is on discovering and nurturing the personal traits and focused interests people on the spectrum bring to their world. Through their individual strengths, autistic people can experience a positive and fulfilling life. The systems that surround neurodiverse people put more emphasis on the person’s “deficits” and/or “developmental delays” rather than affirming differences, often feeding low self-esteem, depression and anxiety. This book is a guide to engaging or challenging these systems, and how to nurture each person’s superpowers. It is hard, but attainable.
