Full Description

Wendy Lawson has an autism spectrum disorder. Considered to be intellectually disabled and 'almost incapable of doing as she is told' at school, she was later misdiagnosed as schizophrenic - a label that stuck with her for more than 25 years.

Her sense of self was then non-existent, but Wendy is now a mother of four with two university degrees; she is a social worker and adult educator, and operates her own business. She is also a poet and a writer, sharing her understanding of autism with others to help 'build a bridge from my world to theirs'. Life Behind Glass is part of that bridge.


Foreword by Patricia Howlin, Senior Lecturer in Psychology, St George's Hospital, London. Introduction: This is my story. 1. My world behind glass. 2. Love and feelings are a mystery. 3. My first take on life. 4. School intrudes. 5. A bumpy road to recovery. 6. Teenage dreams and fears. 7. Where to after school? 8. Farewell to childhood. 9. Children of my own. 10. The middle years. 11. My coming of age. 12. Learning to cope. 13. The anguish of change. 14. Finding love and friendship. 15. It's my world too.
