AAPC Publishing Announces the Presale of Life After Lockdown: Resetting Perceptions of Autism

A Moment-In-Time Book Whose Relevance Will Last

Authored by Over 40 Professionals and Individuals With ASD, Life After Lockdown Offers Answers and Hope for Individuals, Families, and Educators

Individuals on the autism spectrum have been profoundly affected by the pandemic and lockdown in both negative and positive ways. Perhaps one of the most misunderstood and stigmatized disabilities in the United States, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) affects 1 in every 54 children. AAPC Publishing, the nation’s leading autism educational resource provider, has worked since 1999 to shine a light on the realities of ASD through research-based books, written and reviewed by top autism specialists. As the world continues to navigate a changing societal landscape, AAPC Publishing is proud to announce the release of their groundbreaking new book designed to offer answers and hope for individuals with ASD, their families, and educators. 

This one-of-a-kind collaboration with over 40 well-known professionals and individuals with ASD provides wisdom, humor, and a hefty dose of reality for autistic and non-autistic readers. As the world engages in plans for reopening, the adjustment to rebuilding social connections, returning to school, and navigating a post-COVID world can be extremely anxiety-inducing for those with autism. Life After Lockdown seeks to provide a thought-provoking roadmap to:

• Becoming social again
• Getting back to school
• Navigating the transition to adulthood and employment
• Returning to the community in a post-pandemic world
• Understanding how life after lockdown could be a moment of profound change for those on the spectrum

Highlighting the untold stories of individuals on the spectrum, Life After Lockdown provides insightful reflection to inspire the autism community in moving forward with confidence. But also posits the provocative idea that autistic individuals may not be willing to accept the pre-pandemic status quo. Contributors include some of the most famous and well-known people in the field, including Temple Grandin, who had an HBO movie made of her life story.

Amy Tobik, Editor-in-Chief of Exceptional Needs Today and CEO of Heron Publishing, said of the book, “Whether you’re a self-advocate, parent, educator, or medical professional, Life After Lockdown: Resetting Perceptions of Autism provides the positivity and energy needed to bring the autism community together during otherwise unpredictable times. This collection of essays by more than 40 distinctive voices skillfully explores our new world as we attempt to return to post-pandemic daily life. From sensory issues and social struggles to anxieties and emotional health, Life After Lockdown uniquely presents the strategies and encouragement needed to move forward.”
