My First Book About Autism, Release Date, Preorders and More!

I have finished my book about autism and I am set to release it May 31st. I am using Gumroad to publish the book. You can preorder your copy now! If you use the code 'wired differently,' you will get 1 dollar off. The book is 2.99. With the code I provided for you, you will get the book for 1.99.


I wore this book to educate others on how we struggle with employment. Imagine posting on Facebook about needing money for something you want and some jerk says 'get a job you lazy ***'
Don't you wish they knew it wasn't that simple for you? Don't you wish they knew you can't find or hold a job due to your autism? This book explains some reasons why we struggle to find or keep a job. You may see this is as negative. You have to point out the problem to find a solution, right? I do have a proposal that I feel will fix our issue. You have to know why you want to make a change.
Promo video will be up on my channel Aaliyah Holt.

This book can help the following
  • Anyone who works with autistic kids, it's important to know that it will be tough for them to find or keep a job so you can better assist them. Most schools have job programs. 
  • Parents of aspie kids/teens/adults. 
  • Anyone who wants to learn about autism
  • Students who have to write a report on a disorder. 
  • Your friends. This can help your friends to better understand you. 
  • Special education teachers. While you want to prepare kids for the adult world, they will have a great deal of trouble with finding a job.  
If you want to know what change you want to make, you have to know what you want. 
If you want to wait for the release of the book, that is fine. The book was written, proofread and published by me.
The cover was made by this person.

Jobs For Adults With Autism

Just got fired from your 12, 20th etc job? Or are you just out of your luck and can't find any jobs that fit your needs. I will be explaining some jobs I feel are right for adults with autism that you can probably do remotely. This is my opinion but everyone is different and will have different skills. I did research for this blog post. I always to research before covering certain topics.


Sometimes 'real world' jobs are not for us. They are built the around neurotypical force. Remember that NTs don't have the issues that we have. We are sometimes forced to accommodate the Nts and that is not right. This article talks about the jobs that I feel is right for us. It will probably be won't be a walk in the park to get. It's better than being fired from several jobs due to your differences.

How To Give Criticism To Autistic People

I am a content creator. You're going to get feedback from people on how they feel you can do a certain thing better. I am tired of arguing. I am tired of taking their feedback the wrong and they think I can't take criticism. It's common for people on the autism spectrum do not handle certain types of criticism. It could be a low self-esteem thing as well. With us, we need a different approach to getting feedback. Another thing I have noticed is if I am not understanding what the person wants me to do because there are no visuals I can refer to, they will think I don't want their feedback if I try to explain why it will not work for me. This person told me they didn't like it when I read what the game is saying when I play games like Undertale, I will attach a link to one of my lets plays so you know what I am talking about. where you can make your own voice for the character. I explain I read what the screen is saying because if I don't, the viewers will get bo…

Jobs That Are NOT For Adults With Autism

I made a blog article on jobs that would work for adults with autism. However, I think we should cover the jobs that you should avoid if you are on the autism spectrum. This is just my 2 cents. Everyone is different.

It's rough for people with autism to find steady employment. It's important that you avoid these jobs. Most people with autism have poor short term memory. I am one of these people. I have issues with high demand jobs that call for you to remember a lot of things.  I don't know about you, I cannot handle several tasks at the same time. I am a one at a time person. Do this then move on to the next task when I am done.

Retail/Fast-food

People on the autism spectrum should avoid retail/fast-food jobs. In fast-food, chances are you will be given several tasks at once. That would be too demanding on me because I need time to process, adjust, etc.  Same with retail like grocery stores. You may be given several tasks to do at one time. You w…
