About the Book

“What Every Autistic Girl Wishes Her Parents Knew” is the book that many of us wish our parents would have had access to when we were growing up. In this first girls anthology book release from the Autistic Women & Nonbinary Network, the autistic contributors write with honesty and generosity about the emotional needs, sensitivity, and vibrancy of autistic girls.

Containing thoughtful and practical encouragement and support for parents, and compiled from the acquired wisdom and experience of autistic individuals, parents will find this collection of essays an invaluable resource for supporting their autistic daughters in developing strength, trust and confidence in themselves, and in the world.
