Let it Go, a book by Dame Stephanie Shirley CH

‘Let it Go’ – SIGNED Memoir of Dame Stephanie Shirley –  £10.00 p&p included

We have signed copies of this incredible autobiography by Dame Stephanie Shirley, founder of Autism at Kingwood. It tells the story of a five-year-old German girl whose parents sent her away to escape the Nazis, on one of the last Kindertransport trains out of Europe; of a young refugee who found love and acceptance with an English foster family, and who vowed that she would repay them by living “a life worth saving”; of a brilliant young woman whose pioneering computer skills were rebuffed, in the 1950s and 1960s, by sexism in the workplace; of a brave entrepreneur who defied convention by setting up her own company and defied it further by employing women working from home, and giving them the unheard of freedom to choose their own hours and manage their own workloads; of a woman who spent her wealth setting up Autism at Kingwood for her autistic son.

FREE DOWNLOADS: Living in the Community – Housing Design for Adults with Autism

Autism at Kingwood collaborated in an important piece of research with the Helen Hamlyn Centre at the Royal College of Art and the University of Bangor, to explore the way in which housing and design can impact on the lives of autistic people.

The results from this study led to joint publications of the following downloadable publications. If you would like hard copies, please email us at  info@kingwood.org.uk

Living in the Community This considers how autistic people interact with an environment that has been specifically adapted and furnished to take account of their individual sensory issues, assessing whether these adaptations minimise stress and anxiety triggers.

Exploring Sensory Preferences describes a design research project aimed at developing ways to support autistic adults to better manage relationships with their home environments and other people by creating living accommodation that is more sensitive to their sensory needs. The publication draws findings from the published guide into making sensory props (Ready Steady Make).

A well-designed garden can enhance focus and attention, and reduce anxiety, thereby improving quality of life. Green spaces explores outdoor environments for autistic adults. The publication describes how design can create beneficial green spaces benefiting those that use them.

Picture It addresses the sensory preferences and special interests of those with autism.
