 Now available! E-book edition of The Autism Trail Guide: Postcards from the Road Less Traveled, with all-new appendix of questions for study, discussion, or self-reflection. Ideal for parent support groups, classrooms, families and journal writers.

The Autism Trail Guide is GREAT! I suggest this book to any parent with a child on the spectrum, and to any teacher of that child.  Thank you to the author, for opening my eyes even wider on what I can do as a parent as well as help my child’s educators and specialists better understand him.”

This month in my Perspectives column in Autism Aspergers Digest: Postcards from the Road Less Traveled. While I tend to define my life more in moments than milestones, this month marks a noteworthy anniversary—ten years since I wrote my first column for Autism Asperger’s Digest. Our family has grown through a mind-bending amount of change since then and yet, that first column is timeless, as if I wrote it yesterday. Countless children with autism have been born since then,so a rerun seems fitting. Some passages made their way into my book, Ten Things Every Child with Autism Wishes You Knew, and thus may sound familiar to some of you. Like an old friend, I hope.
