  1. Some novels I have read with character portrayels of Autism/Aspergers, not always as a main character. Starred are my Favourites. Eleanor Oliphont Is completely Fine - Gail Honeyman Attachments - Rainbow Rowell *Radio Silence - Alice Orseman The Kiss Quotient - Helen Hoang *All Systems Red (and whole Murderbot series - Its about a human-like robot but is very relatable from an Austism perspective) - Martha Wells Lady Midnight (and whole Dark Artifices series) - Cassandra Clare The Rosie Project - Graeme Simsion The Perks of Being a Wallflower - Stephen Chbosky The curious incident of the Dog in the Nightime - Mark Haddon *The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo - Steig Larsson I also think: Truly Devious - Maureen Johnson Mary Poppins - P.L Travers (very different from the films) Please share any you have read

    Colour Filters

    I suppose that this isn't really an Asperger's thing but I just wanted to say that I've always had a bit of difficulty reading. I often have to go over what I've read a few times before the words even start to make sense in my brain, and I sometimes forgot what I've read only a few seconds later and then I have to re-read it again. And when I do read and remember everything, I almost always have to read the entire page again to actually comprehend the meaning of what is being said. I wasn't sure if anyone else regularly has these kinds of problems, but I just wanted to say that I've tried using a colour filter on my computer like what dyslexic people use and it hasn't made the problems go away completely but it has helped quite a bit. I find that when reading with the filter, the text is clearer in some ways. It isn't clearer visually because there's a lower contrast between the foreground and the background, but it's clearer for me to read. I find that I can skim over the text with a kind of ease that I've never really experienced before, and I remember and comprehend almost the entire page with just one reading and no backing-up and re-reading. And when I read my brain feels a lot more relaxed. The only problem that I've had with the filter so far is that I get a mild headache after using the same colour for an hour or two, so I have to change the colour from time to time. The other thing that I wish I could do is run my widescreen monitor at a 4:3 aspect ratio, because I sometimes find the long lines of text require me to move my head too much when reading, but somehow when I run it at a narrower resolution everything looks blurry even though I'm keeping the virtual-pixel to device-pixel ratio at 1:1. I might also consider getting some physical colour filters for use with printed material (or I could scan things into the computer). Thanks, invisible
