Courtesy of author Chantal Sicile-Kira, just learned about this new autism dad book: Following Ezra: What One Father Learned About Gumby, Otters, Autism, and Love from His Extraordinary Son, by Tom Fields-Meyer. Writes Sicile-Kira: "It's a wonderful memoir, full of warmth, humor about raising a child with autism."
Since I just learned about this luscious-sounding read Sunday, I've not read it yet, but will add it to my list. What a great title, eh? That will suck in most any autism parent who's open to the concept that autism is not a dirty word. Secondly, I'm sure every autism parent-teacher-auxiliary-service-provider reading here can relate to the dinosaur images. Am I right? Priceless….
Also: For a spell, I'm guest posting over at my friend, "Spectrum Mom's" blog, Autism Reads, which reviews books for younger ones with autism spectrum disorder. My guest posts–originally published here, on "The Journey with Grace"–are reviews of autism-related books, written for adults. You can read them at Autism Reads on Mondays. Click on over! This week's post featured John Elder Robison's Look Me in the Eye.
So, have you read any books on autism lately? Tell me.
