Description & Features+
Dr. Treffert tells us in his Introduction, "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." Dr. Shore knows this all too well. In his chapter he reflects on a time when a physician saw institutionalization as the best option for people with autism. The contributors tell their heartfelt stories in the belief that these will lessen the burden on others, provide hope to readers, and help others on the autism spectrum pursue what they might only dream about now.
You will rise to rejoice with all the contributors when they reach the mountaintops and proudly tell you of their successes. But you'll also ride through the swampland of emotions and turmoil. Chapter by chapter you will read and recognize key factors that were important in the young and developing lives of these scholars. They share some of their deepest, even darkest secrets. You'll know the torment, get a sense of the anxieties and fears, and you'll become aware of the hyper-sensate world of autism where a simple touch of love and reassurance can feel like a blow to the body.
You'll see their frustrating sense of incompetence that competes with their other sense of brilliance. You'll witness their view of intolerance to society's complete misunderstanding of who they are, who they want to be, of who they can be. Dr. Paradiz concludes that in order for the world to better understand those on the spectrum, "We must do all we can to change attitudes.
