Early Praise for My New Book

Pre-order my new book! And see early praise, below!


You can now pre-order my book, Autism Adulthood: Strategies and Insights for a Fulfilling Life. And thank you, John Elder Robison for a lovely foreword, and Ron Suskind, Arthur Fleischmann, Claire LaZebnik, Laura Shumaker, and Temple Grandin for beautiful blurbs. Pre-Order here.

See what is being said by beloved autism authors:

“In this book, like her others, the wonderful Susan Senator gives voice to those who are too often voiceless — folks with ASD who seek what they deserve — lives of purpose and possibilities.” –Ron Suskind, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and bestselling author of Life Animated, A Story of Sidekicks, Heroes and Autism.

“There is a huge need for books to help individuals with autism make the transition to adulthood.  Autism is a wide spectrum, ranging from a brilliant Aspergers at a technology company to an adult who cannot dress himself. These individuals need very different services.  Susan Senator describes successful journeys, as well as her own with her son Nat. I highly recommend this book for parents and teachers who are guiding individuals in the middle range within the broad autism spectrum.” –Temple Grandin, author
The Autistic Brain
Thinking in Pictures

“From the introduction, Autism Adulthood: Strategies for a Meaningful Life will bring you to that dark place parents of young adults with autism fear. But just as quickly, Susan offers practical advice through story-telling and concise, how-to strategies that will leave you feeling optimistic, hopeful and back in control – all any of us can ask for. A thoroughly readable and important book.” –Arthur Fleischmann, author of Carly’s Voice: Breaking Through Autism

Autism Adulthood is a book I will be recommending to every autism parent I know. Senator is as warm as she is wise, as thoughtful as she is knowledgeable, as compassionate as she is informative.  Her rallying cry of “All we can do is love each other” will resound in any parent’s heart. Senator loves fiercely–which means she does everything she can to ensure the best life and future for her adult child with autism. This book will inspire the rest of us to do the same for ours.” –Claire LaZebnik, author of Overcoming Autism: Finding the Answers, Strategies, and Hope that can Transform a Child’s Life

“Susan Senator’s book is a must read not only autism parents but for disability parents in general. Parents need to pick up this book early and read it often to prepare practically and emotionally for the future. It is well researched from a mother’s watchful perspective. It will get you thinking hopefully about the future from the start, and is full of tips and tricks that will save you time, money and heartbreak.” –Laura Shumaker, author of A Regular Guy: Growing Up with Autism
