I Am Autistic - Author Talk


Hawke’s Bay Readers and Writers Trust invites you to an evening with Chanelle Moriah. Their book, I Am Autistic, is a tool for both diagnosed and undiagnosed autistics to explain or make sense of their experiences. It also offers non-autistic people the chance to learn more about autism from someone who is autistic.

When Chanelle was diagnosed with autism at 21, life finally began to make sense.

Hungry for information, Chanelle looked for a simple resource that could explain what autism is and how it can impact the different areas of an autistic person's life, but found that there was little written from the perspective of someone who is autistic.

So Chanelle decided to create that missing resource.

Chanelle discovered just how difficult it can be for autistic adults - particularly females or those assigned female at birth - to be diagnosed or even be assessed for autism. This is partly because there is very little understanding of the different ways autism can present itself.

I Am Autistic helps people feel less alone in their autism and brings knowledge to an often-misunderstood condition.

The book will be available for sale on the night.

All offerings are subject to the Covid Protection Framework traffic light system. Numbers may be limited, and physical distancing and mask-wearing required.
