A true and honest insight into the journey of growing up with autism.

I recently read this book whilst on a trip in Iceland and found it incredibly hard to put down, Callum's accounts of his struggles and triumphs over his autism growing up and in his early adult years are described in great detail.

Thought provoking, and heartfelt

Whilst I knew someone with Autism, I knew very little about what it meant, how it effected everyday life and how others perceived it. I got to say this gave me a an insight into that world and answered all my questions.

Everyone should read this!

This book is so interesting and informative, and I think it’s a must-read for both neurodiverse and neurotypical people. We can all learn from Callum’s positive “can-do” approach to life and it’s challenges, and his techniques for solving day to day problems.

In honour of #worldbookday...

In honour of #worldbookday I wanted to share a very special book “From the Dark Into the Light” that I read recently about autism, written by Callum Gamble that opened a whole new perspective on life of autistic people for me (or in this case Callum’s experiences).

Meet Callum

He runs an autism and neurodiversity consultancy and is the co-founder of the UK’s leading autistic web accessibility consultancy KreativeInc Agency. As a lifelong Formula One motor racing nerd, his party piece is recalling every single Formula One racing champion since the 1950s.

What is Autism?

Autism affects people in many different ways, both positively and negatively, hence why it’s called a spectrum condition. Callum, who was diagnosed with autism at 8 years old, for example, excels in recalling dates and events of a specific topic but struggles with his brain processing in communication.

Signs of autism in children include: not being as aware of their surroundings as they should be, engaging in repetitive behaviour, having interests or hobbies with an intense focus and difficulties in social situations.
