Author Julie Clark
Latest Interview – July 2016!
Family, Autism Spectrum Disorder (Asperger’s Syndrome) and Modern Folklore Writer
Julie Clark comes to the stage with years of experience as a writer, author and mom of a daughter on the Autism Spectrum (Asperger’s Syndrome). Her best known published work, the book “Asperger’s in Pink” (2010 Future Horizons), is enjoying its second printing as well as a global readership. Endorsed by experts such as Dr. Tony Attwood and Rudy Simone, “Asperger’s in Pink” continues to help families around the globe.
Currently, Julie writes about Autism Spectrum Disorder and general special needs and family topics for the award winning family blog, “We Know Stuff…,” a spot where you can find all sorts of articles from autism to healthy living to crafting. Her point of view is that of a mother who has, “been there, done that,” always looking to relevant, personal experiences in order to help others who are journeying the same path of having someone with special needs in the family. Several of her popular articles written for “We Know Stuff…” have been picked up by POPSUGAR.
Aside from writing about the family and Autism Spectrum Disorder (Asperger’s Syndrome), Julie Clark enjoys writing modern folklore, drawing upon her Appalachian heritage and oral histories passed down throughout generations. Modern folklore written by Julie Clark is a new venture, and she is thrilled to share these new novels with you soon!
Speaker, Consultant and Confidant
If Julie Clark has one passion, it is to improve the lives of others. Sometimes, this includes simply taking you away from the stresses of everyday life via fictional works, such as her upcoming modern folklore book series. Others, it’s helping through “Asperger’s in Pink,” an easy to read, down to earth approach about raising someone on the Autism Spectrum (Asperger’s). Regardless what books she will author, her heart will always remain in helping others living with Autism Spectrum Disorder (Asperger’s Syndrome). Julie now takes appointments for consultations for those looking for advice regarding raising a child on the Autism Spectrum (Asperger’s Syndrome), working with the school system with a child with special needs, and other topics related to living and caring with someone with Autism Spectrum Disorder, formerly known as Asperger’s Syndrome. (To be clear, Julie’s consulting work is from a mother’s point of view, and not intended for medical or psychiatric advice. Think of it as one friend helping another.)
Julie treats every client she consults with the utmost in confidentiality and respect, and sees each family as unique. She is currently located in North Carolina, and considers in person consulting sessions as well as Skype and email consultations.
