Common Scents: Adventures in Autism and Chemical Sensitivity

About the Author


 Kate Goldfield lives in Falmouth, Maine. She was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome in 2004, and has become a passionate advocate for autism advocacy and education ever since. 

She has spoken at the Penn Autism Network Conference in Philadelphia and the ASPEN Annual Conference in New Jersey; her articles about autism have been published in the Baltimore Sun, Hartford Courant, Autism Encyclopedia, and the Autism Asperger's Digest Magazine, among others. 

Kate's struggles with multiple chemical sensitivities combined with her autism spectrum challenges spurred her to write this book; partly to educate others about these disabilities, and partly to record the wild ride that moving around the country for two years with these disabilities has been.
