AspergerWorld: My Fairy Jam Jar is a fascinating, recently-launched part-autobiographical book written by Joely Colmer, a young woman with Asperger’s syndrome.
It aims to inspire and empower those on the autistic spectrum and teach them the joy of self-acceptance.
It shares Joely’s journey: from the challenges she faced as a child, to successfully completing her education, to her current role as an autism activist and a passionate awareness-raising campaigner.
For those living with an autism spectrum disorder, AspergerWorld provides helpful tips for day-to-day living. It also contains invaluable advice for both parents and professionals on how to best support those with autism.
Most importantly, it aims to educate, igniting what Joely calls ‘a positive rainbow of change’ into the heart of the autistic community.
“I have always dreamt of changing lives, and being a role model for others as an autism activist,” explains Joely. “I write so I can empower; I wish to enhance understanding of the hidden hardships and quirks of Asperger’s syndrome.”
