In My Mind

From His Life with Autism, Alex Answers All Your Questions

by Alex Olinkiewicz

Book Image Not Available
Overview
Every child with Asperger’s has some great gift. Alex’s gift is his ability to penetrate to the core of his Asperger’s syndrome and articulate his responses to enlighten the reader. Alex looks at eight primary symptoms of Asperger’s and explains how they are pertinent in his life. Augmented by graphics drawn by the author himself, this book brings rare insight into the mind of a young person with autism or Asperger’s syndrome.
Description
Rarely does one get to read about not the causes but the mystifying effects within the mind of a young man who has the mental disorder commonly known as Asperger’s syndrome—now a form of autism considered to be found at the lower end of the autism spectrum. A unique opportunity is afforded us by Alex Olinkiewiz, the author of the very successful YouTube video, “In My Mind,” which has astounded more than 1,300,000 viewers. In his book with same name, he reveals, illuminates, and describes with great insights exactly what is going on in his mind. Not all children with Asperger’s syndrome have the same symptoms. Each individual reflects a different variation of color (a spectrum) at the mild end of the rainbow (of autism). Alex’s particular colors (his revelations) are incisive and give others a deeper understanding, as well as a greater feeling, of the pain and joy our fellow human beings with Asperger’s experience during their journeys through life. Many experts will tell us what Asperger’s syndrome is—its causes and symptoms. Parents will describe their journey through life with their children who have Asperger’s. Brothers and sisters will share their hardships in dealing with a sibling who has Asperger’s. Schoolteachers, psychologists, and school administrators will tell of their experiences, their extensive efforts, their mistakes, and their coming to understand children with Asperger’s syndrome. However, few young people with Asperger’s syndrome have attempted to actually analyze their experience of Asperger’s syndrome within themselves—and fewer have succeeded in explaining it with the brilliancy of insight that Alex has achieved.
About the author
Hi! My name is Alex Olinkiewicz. Some people have trouble understanding the mind of an autistic person. Since we look or behave exactly like you, sometimes when we act in our Asperger’s way, you can’t really understand us. If there were an antidote to Asperger’s, I would not take it. I would not want to get rid of what makes me who I am. I just hope that because of my explanations, you can understand me and autism much better.
