Autism, Anxiety and Me: A Diary in Even Numbers by Emma Louise Bridge & Penelope Bridge | 1 Minute Reviews

This fantastic little book is such a brilliant idea that I’m incredibly happy it exists.

Emma writes her diary entries, labelled with even numbers, covering a wide range of problems she experiences in her life over a period of time where her family moves from their house to rental accommodation. Emma is frank, witty and brilliant.

At the end of her entries, her mother Penelope provides commentary and explanation of how to mediate the issues raised in Emma’s entries.

This is such a brilliant all-in-one guide for parents of autistic children and teenagers, that can be passed back and forth for mutual understanding. Great differentiations are made between general sickness and autism, how to work to manage panic attacks and ways to explain society’s assumptions.

I hope that every parent of an autistic child gets a copy of it. Suitable for teenagers and adults, and I believe that partners and carers would find much of the information from Penelope useful.

Interested? Get it here.
