Paul Louden: Behind The Locked Door: Understanding My Life as an Autistic

Paul Louden, an autistic adult, bravely shares personal narratives to bridge understanding between those with autism and those without. With compelling detail, Paul invites those wired neuro-typically into his autistic experiences. Paul tackles tough stuff such as motivation for hygiene, difficulty sustaining family bonds and differences in emotional memory. He shares hidden aspects of daily life with clarity, courage and humor. In doing so, readers discover a respect for neurological differences. This book is more than a how-to manual; the material within allows others to create their own personalized road-map toward more empathic responses, better interactions, and deeper understanding of each other. Anecdotes from Paul and his parents provide an understanding of what it means to live with someone with a neurology different than your own. Paul recognizes both personal strengths and struggles. In doing so, it becomes clear that autistic wiring does not change one’s need for genuine connections, a sense of belonging, and a desire to be understood.
