Autism, an inside-out approach : an innovative look at the mechanics of 'autism' and its developmental 'cousins' by Donna Williams( Book )

15 editions published between 1996 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Donna William's challenging new book, written by an autistic person for people with autism and related disorders, carers, and the professionals who work with them, is a practical handbook to understanding, living with and working with autism. Exploring autism from the inside, it shows clearly how the behaviours associated with autism can have a range of different causes, and in many cases reflect the autistic person's attempt to gain control over their internal world. The sensory and perceptual problems that challenge a person with autism are described in depth, together with strategies for tackling them so as to enable that person to take more control of their lives. Donna Williams comments on the various approaches to autism, drawing out those strategies that are of real use, and explaining why some approaches may prove counterproductive, leaving the autistic person feeling even more isolated and misunderstood." "Taking the view that understanding autism is the key to managing the condition, Donna William's book will bring illumination to all those who have felt baffled and frustrated by the outside appearance of autism. It contains a wealth of helpful suggestions, insights and new ideas, exploding old myths and promoting a view that all those involved with autism will find empowering and creative."--Jacket
Exposure anxiety--the invisible cage : an exploration of self-protection responses in the autism spectrum and beyond by Donna Williams( Book )

11 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Exposure anxiety is increasingly understood as a crippling condition affecting a high proportion of people on the autism spectrum. To many it is an invisible cage, leaving the person suffering from it aware, but buried alive in their own involuntary responses and isolation. Exposure Anxiety: The Invisible Cage describes the condition and its underlying physiological causes, and presents a range of approaches and strategies that can be used to combat it. Based on personal experience, the book shows how people with autism can be shown how to emerge from the stranglehold of exposure anxiety and d
The jumbled jigsaw : an insider's approach to the treatment of autistic spectrum 'fruit salads' by Donna Williams( Book )

16 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and Japanese and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Jumbled Jigsaw exposes autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) not as single entities but as a combination of a whole range of often untreated, sometimes easily treatable, underlying conditions. Exploring everything from mood, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive and tic disorders to information processing and sensory perceptual difficulties, including dependency issues, identity problems and much more, Donna demonstrates how a number of such conditions can combine to form a 'cluster condition' and underpin the label 'autism spectrum disorder'. Donna Williams encourages and empowers families to look at

Somebody Somewhere chronicles the four years since Donna's diagnosis and continues the journey she began in Nobody Nowhere.

The decision has brought both agonies and rewards. She describes her trial by fire as she abandons the two alternate identities she used to hide behind, Carol and Willie, and goes forth nakedly as Donna alone
Like color to the blind by Donna Williams( Book )

12 editions published between 1996 and 2002 in English and Japanese and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Annotation "Beyond the world of Nobody Nowhere, Donna Williams found friendship and a sense of belonging in Somebody Somewhere. Now, in Like Colour to the Blind, Donna Williams enters the most exposing and fragile realm of human interaction: her relationship and eventual marriage with someone with whom she can 'simply be', a relationship she terms a 'specialship'. But loving involves exposure, and in a relationship that exposure is inescapable and everywhere. To truly love, Donna must expose the very things which protected her all her life - the masks she has hidden behind, the patchwork creations which stood in place of self. She must learn to find a want, to give and to take from others, to reach behind the polite social facades and trained gestures." "In Donna's relationship with Ian, a man with difficulties related to her own, we watch the two of them break through their rock-solid emotional barriers and let go control, daring to defy all the rules imposed by the autistic condition of 'exposure anxiety' and freefalling, together. Their struggle is told with Donna's characteristic gutsy humour, brutal insight and sense of fragility."--BOOK JACKET. Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Nadie en ningún lugar : la historia extraordinaria de una autista desde su infancia hasta su juventud by Donna Williams( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in Spanish and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La historia de Donna Williams es realmente extraordinaria. Este libro es la primera parte de su vida. La segunda está escrita en Alguien en algún lugar (Ned ediciones, 2012). En Nadie en ningún lugar, la autora muestra de qué manera una persona que lo tiene todo en contra puede a partir de los pocos elementos que los azares de la vida y su entorno ponen a su disposición llegar a construir una buena vida. Nos enseña que lo que se llama hoy autismo es una realidad compleja, que incluye realidades muy diversas. La riqueza de la descripción que nos hace Donna de su mundo y de los medios de su lucha nos muestran a una persona única, más allá de lo que cualquier etiqueta nos puede transmitir. Por otra parte, también nos da a ver, con una visión crítica que no dejará indiferente a nadie, la distancia que hay entre nuestras formas de querer ayudar a una persona y el hecho de ayudarla realmente en términos que para ella sean aceptables. Y no se limita esto, sino que aporta ideas muy concretas e interesantes que pueden ayudarnos a ayudar a quienes no disponen de los elementos comunes para encontrar deseables las cosas que nosotros deseamos. Finalmente no hay que olvidar que la decisión de salir del mundo privado del autista y tender un puente al mundo más comúnmente compartido es totalmente individual, nunca puede ser impuesta. Como demuestra Donna, imponerlo puede causar más dolor que bienestar. Que nadie se extrañe si se emociona al leer, en algunos pasajes de este libro, un canto a la libertad que nos hace pensar en las formas de servilismo y de sometimiento que a menudo consideramos «normalidad».
