Brenda Rothman at Mama Be Good:
“What I love about Lynne’s book is that she offers advice in a non-shaming way. She addresses specific challenges of autism, but also focuses on strengths. Lynne recommends mindfulness – one of my favorite supports – and asks the reader many questions that require personal reflection. She deals with potentially sticky subjects like interpersonal conflict on the job, sex, and vulnerability to dangerous situations with a respectful approach. Each chapter ends with a list of important points to remember.
I love reading Lynne’s personal stories and her upcoming book. This book, like all self-help books, could easily have been condescending or too far to the you-are-superhero side. And it doesn’t. One of the sweetest parts of Lynne’s book, for example, is her husband’s tender re-telling of their relationship, their challenges, and how they’ve grown together.”
Ariane Zurcher, at Emma’s Hope Book:
“Living Independently on the Autism Spectrum by Lynne Soraya is described as ?What you need to know to move into a place of your own, succeed at work, start a relationship, stay safe.? In fact, it?s a great deal more….Many of the things Lynne writes about are not only things I?ve never had to think about, they are things that have never even occurred to me to think about.”
