Joshua Muggleton - Writings[ Short Bio | Back to my Home page | Media and Press Work | Speaking Engagements | Twitter | mugsy.org Home Page ]
Here are some of the resources and articles that I have written, along with information about my book.
Raising Martians: From Crash Landing to Leaving Home is my first book, designed to guide parents through having a child with Aspergers syndrome or High Functioning autism. Often when I speak to parents, they describe getting the diagnosis for their child as a crash landing: everything changes, and they start wondering what they should be doing differently. This book takes parents from the very basics of what Autism is, right through to a guide to primary school, secondary school, and beyond. In doing so, I try and enable the reader to see though the eyes of someone on the spectrum, so they can better understand their child. By the end, I hope that parents feel better able to understand their son or daughter, and that while a Martian may have crash landed into their lives at the start, it is a very unique and special individual leaving home.
I am currently in the early stages of
writing a second book designed to make the academic research currently
going on around autism accessible to the layman.
These articles are available to be published. Please contact me if interested.
