NEWEST NOVEL February 2021
Author Michelle L. Myers gives neurotypical people a fresh perspective into the mind of a female, autistic adult. Humorous, blunt, and often shocking, she allows the reader to see the world through her eyes. She champions the idea that she doesn't need to be fixed, and has the controversial conversation about how autistic women are often misdiagnosed or overlooked.
It wasn't until Michelle's seven children were diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, that she was allowed to be tested. After years of feeling out of place, she embraced the liberation of how powerful a diagnosis can be. While autism doesn't define her life, it is an element of wonder which evolves with age.
Overwhelmed by the misconceptions in regard to autism, she decided to finish off a book she began in 2009. Michelle L. Myers believes that autistic people are often put in the cages of those who deem us incompetent and too different. Let Us Out of The Cages - An Adult With Autism, highlights the discrimination and stereotypical manner in which many people treat autistic people. If you have an autistic child or adult in your life, this book is a must read.
