The Autistic Guide to Adventure Summary

The Autistic Guide to Adventure: Active Pursuits from Archery to Wild Swimming for Tweens and Teens by Allie Mason

It's time for a new generation of autistic adventurers!

Outdoor adventuring can be life changing - it makes you physically and mentally stronger, takes you to new places and introduces you to new friends, as well as being an exhilarating challenge - but it can be stressful when there are unexpected social and sensory challenges involved. Allie Mason, autistic adventurer extraordinaire, is here to help.

Join Allie as she introduces activities ranging from archery to stargazing, sailing to fossil hunting, snorkeling to nature-writing - and so much more. Each easily digestible factsheet comes with a short introduction, a summary of the sensory experiences involved, suggestions on approaching activities for when you're just getting started, as well as a handy budgeting system.

With personal anecdotes and interviews with awesome autistic athletes, this book will give you the support you need to take on the great outdoors.

The Autistic Guide to Adventure Reviews

What a fantastic book! Allie Mason has used her lived experience and zest for life to give autistic young people the information they need to get out and get involved in a wide range of active pursuits. The adventure starts here! -- Michael James, author of Forest School and Autism: A Practical Guide
Want to give an Autistic child, or a young adult, the gift of enchantment in a world that is inaccessible? This is the book they need - I just wish that this had been around when I was a child. -- Lydia Wilkins, journalist and author of The Autism Friendly Cookbook
While change and trying new things can be scary, Allie has a way of welcoming autistics to feel a little less anxious about getting out of their comfort zones. Allie guides readers through everything - lived experiences of autistic people who enjoy adventure and share their passions, sensory expectations, and ideas to get more involved. As a nervous adventurer, I found myself excited to learn more and explore new hobbies and ideas after reading. -- Haley Moss, author of The Young Autistic Adult's Independence Handbook
