Do autistic people grieve differently?
inner riches – an autistic woman’s story of love & motherloss by Michelle Dorothy Riksman
This heartwarming memoir tells the story of an extraordinary bond between a mother and daughter. Grief on the autism spectrum is not often talked about. Contrary to many myths, this book demonstrates how autistic people deeply feel. It mines the depth of human emotion and is like no other book about grief. Experience Michelle’s transformation following her late diagnosis of autism and gain deeper insight into the emotional lives of autistic women. At the same time, discover unique strategies for healing after loss.
"inner riches has helped people from all walks of life, of all ages, those on and off the autism spectrum."
