Synopsis

Stephanie talks about what it is like to be a girl living with autism. She explains that getting a diagnosis is very difficult because women are just thought to be shy. Stephanie shares her journey and the process of getting diagnosed with autism. She got tired of being told she was not autistic by male doctors and started going to a female doctor who would listen to hear and diagnose her.

Stephanie shares stories of bullying along with stories of triumph and accomplishment in this book. She really struggles socially with relating to other women because girls use to bully her and make fun of her in school. Stephanie gives the reader tips on how to live as a woman with autism and survive in a world that is thought to be full of only men with autism.

Stephanie's mother spent years trying to convince doctors that her child had autism. She did all kinds of research and quickly developed a plan to show with doctors. She documented everything and had a lot of records to show doctors but still no male doctors would listen to her. Stephanie and her mother finally found a female doctor that listened to her and would diagnose her with autism spectrum disorder. Stephanie and her mother share their story in this very informative book on being a woman with autism.
