Laura Turner chats with Clem Bastow, a Melbourne-based Autism advocate, screenwriter, award-winning cultural critic and semi-retired journalist. She is part of what is being called ‘The Lost Generation’ - people who for years have slipped through the cracks and whose late Autism Spectrum Disorder diagnoses has proven both life affirming and life changing. And now, she’s written her story in a heart-felt ‘coming of age’ memoir called ‘Late Bloomer: How An Autism Diagnosis Changed My Life’ – one of just a handful of books to speak to this lived experience from an Autistic woman’s perspective.
