Julie Hanify has felt different for as long as she can remember, suffering from anxiety, obsession and an inability to prioritise or slow her life down. A teacher, musician and mother, she was burnt out by the time she reached her forties, and her marriage was on the rocks. When ...one of her children was diagnosed with ADHD, a light went on. It turned out Julie had the same disorder and was on the autism spectrum too. This revelation changed her life, and made her want to change the lives of others like her,especially the children she teaches. A Small Blue Thing is a memoir that bursts with the fireball energy and creativity of its author, and explores a way forward for those whose gifts to the world are not what we expect. If I had to recommend one single source of enlightenment on the reality of living with both ADHD and autism I would be hard pressed to go past A Small Blue Thing. Paul G Taylor, consultant paediatrician
