This zine is, simply, a glossary of terms that come up during the desperate search for meaning that comes with an Asperger’s Syndrome diagnosis. I went through it. I know other people go through it. There are plenty of books, either more clinical, or more autobiographical out there. This one cuts straight through shackles of narrative to provide discrete chunks of information in an easy to navigate, dictionary format.
A is for Aspergers is steeped in my personal experience and lightened with a touch of humor. People I’ve shared it with have said it’s very helpful and insightful. My hope is that many people on the autism spectrum, near the autism spectrum, or closely involved with other people on the spectrum, can find this zine relatable and a useful resource.
