Day 26: Making Sense of the Unfeasible: My Life Journey with Asperger Syndrome

Posted on April 26, 2014 in Autism

Making Sense of the Unfeasible coverMaking Sense of the Unfeasibleis the book for readers who love to learn a little something about math and science as they also make some discoveries about autism. Marc Fleisher is not only a man with an interesting story about life on the spectrum, but a passionate person who cares deeply about astronomy, parallel universes, large numbers and more.

Before he received his diagnosis of Asperger Syndrome (AS) in the 1970s, professionals diagnosed Marc Fleisher with an intellectual disability. He is one of many authors profiled this month who were misdiagnosed early in life only to get an autism or Asperger syndrome diagnosis in later years.

Exceeding the expectations of many in his life, Fleisher earned two math degrees and engaged in post-graduate studies in math as well. In his engaging story Marc relates how, despite personal difficulties, he has made it a priority to live artfully and fully. He shares many tips for people on the spectrum, which makes this sort of a two-for-one book if you want a guidebook of sorts as well as a true memoir.

** Idea for using this book: You don’t want to miss the joke-telling tutorial in the back of the book. Use it as a support to learn some new material or pass it on to someone you know who might want some coaching in this area.
