Description

In his Introduction Dr. Treffert states, “The message of hope in this book is a welcome and refreshing one because in the past too many times ‘experts’ had recommended institutional care.” This book is an anthology of eight inspiring autobiographical journeys about living on the spectrum of autism. All have achieved remarkable academic success despite their challenges, some already with a bestselling book. There’s a common myth that living on the spectrum foretells severe disability, failure or worse—institutionalization. This book was published to challenge these notions for families with a son or daughter higher on the autism spectrum. Each contributor’s insights and wisdom are evidence of bright, sensitive and successful individuals who have refused to let a diagnosis identify them. They are examples of strength and triumph any of us would be proud to call our own. Dr. Paradiz ends her chapter- “We must do all we can to change attitudes.”
