The Autism Book You’ve Been Waiting For

Here is a new book that I highly recommend: The Thinking Person’s Guide to Autism. This book is savvy, witty, compassionate, and useful. Contributors include longtime mom bloggers Kyra Anderson, Jess Wilson, Kristina Chew, and someone named Susan Senator, for starters…Here is more info on it:

Thinking Person’s Guide to Autism: The Autism Book You’ve Been Waiting For.

Redwood City, CA December 19, 2011 — “Refreshingly free of dogma, disinformation, and heavy-handed agendas, Thinking Person’s Guide to Autism is an oasis of sanity, compassion, and hope for people on the spectrum and those who love them.” — Steve Silberman, senior writer for Wired magazine and autism/neurodiversity blogger for the Public Library of Science

Thinking Person’s Guide to Autism is the book we wish we’d had when autism first became part of our lives: a one-stop resource for carefully curated, evidence-based information from autism parents, autistics, and autism professionals.

About the Editors

The Thinking Person’s Guide to Autism editors are Shannon Des Roches Rosa, Jennifer Byde Myers, Liz Ditz, Emily Willingham, and Carol Greenburg. Each woman writes, educates, and advocates within the autism communities. This project has its foundation in their collective parenting, science, education, and self-advocacy experience.

GREAT read. There are so many great resources at the end too. I heard about the book from you Susan, but saw it in my son’s ST office and found out that she is one of the contributing writers. Small world!
