About the Author

Diarmuid Heffernan is an ASD consultant who provides services including support and advocacy for people with ASD. Diarmuid also lectures at University College Cork, where he helped create the course for the Diploma in Disability Studies and the Certificate and forthcoming Diploma in Autism Spectrum Studies. He lives just outside Cork in the Republic of Ireland.


Far too often, adults with autism and their experiences seem to be ignored or misunderstood. This book is refreshingly different, bringing interesting new perspectives to the under-explored area of sensory issues in adults. It is written in a way that makes complex topics accessible and, perhaps more importantly, conveys a sense of respect for adults on the spectrum (which is sorely lacking in many texts!). A must-read for adults on the spectrum and those who support them. -- Kirsten Hurley, Programme Coordinator, Autism Studies, University College Cork
Diarmuid has been one of the biggest impacts on my life. Having Asperger's has affected me in different ways, ranging from the sensory aspects to the social aspects. My life has completely changed for the better, and the help I have received from Diarmuid has been outstanding. I would recommend this book for anyone on the autism spectrum. -- Cian Hutt, student with Asperger's syndrome
In his book, Diarmuid manages to explain a hugely complicated subject area in a way that is eminently readable and informative. He bridges the gap between science and the lived experience extremely well, with a healthy dose of suggested ways in which individuals might be supported. -- from the foreword by Dr Luke Beardon, The Autism Centre, Sheffield Hallam University
