And it is on my list of things to get for myself, now that the holidays are all done and I am looking to get into some semblance of a routine again.
The Thinking Person’s Guide to Autism is a collaborative effort that has brought together a lot of wonderful writers and experts. It really is the book that I wish I would have had 11 years ago, when our oldest was first identified. Over the years I had a chance to read a number of the other writers who were also blogging and writing on the subject and became contributers in this book. We were all working our way through, trying to discover and put together the pieces that would make our lives better, more manageable and happier for everyone in our families. This book represents the best of what we each discovered and is a field guide for anyone who is working their way through the novelties and oddities posed by autism.
The editors did a fine job of putting this together. In particular, I want to give a shout to Liz, who has always been a source of encouragement and support to me and my writing. Thanks so much for allowing me to be a part of such a great resource!
