Will Attwood was finishing a three-year sentence in prison when he was formally diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome for the first time. After his diagnosis he recognised just how much it had been affecting his life behind bars. This book is a practical advice guide for people with autism who have been sentenced to time in prison. Will shares his first-hand knowledge of what to expect and how to behave within the penal system. He sheds light on topics that are important for people with autism, answering questions such as: How should you act with inmates and guards? How do you avoid trouble? What about a prison's environmental stimuli may cause you anxiety? His thoughtful, measured writing debunks rumours about daily life in prison, and the useful tips and observations he offers will help anyone with autism prepare for the realities of spending time incarcerated, and be enormously helpful to those working with offenders on the autism spectrum.

DescriptionThis book is for informational purposes only. I wrote this book because I went to prison. I had a good friend at the time who I lost contact with who did about a five-year stretch, who gave me the ins and outs of the basic prison. So I wasn't really walking in blindly which helped to make the transition from civilian to prison life a lot easier for me. This will give the reader an overall overview of what to expect in prison. Mind you, the state I was in, Connecticut, might be different from your state. It very hard to write a tell-all prison guide as I've only been in prison in the state I'm currently living in. The book talks about what to do in the beginning, some prep work before you go into prison, which may help your stay to be better. It also mentions briefly how to look for work with a criminal record.About the authorHard-working individual. Top in his field. Living the American dream. All that changed for him in one day when he was charged with a crime, and spent one year in prison, losing everything. But now, he is doing everything right. Working full-time, running a business and has found love again. Most of his friends abandon him, but a few friends are still around. He wanted to write this book with the hope that it might help someone who find themselves in a similar situation, or someone who is just going into prison for the first time.
