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.
