    My just posted Review: I read the preview pages on A m a z o n. Fantastic. I am ordering this book for myself & copies as gifts for several family members. Eye opening, & so touching. Every person who knows an autistic person should read this book. (I'm still teary eyed. And I am not a big cryer.)

    THANK YOU Aspergirl4hire! I doubt I would have come upon this book if you had not mentioned & posted about it! Thanks!

    I look forward to reading more of your thoughts & feedback on the book. And I look forward to receiving my copy to finish reading it myself. I hope that besides everything else, it's also a cathartic read for Auties & Aspies. After some grieving, I truly hope that the feelings of HOPE & optimism replace despair.

    I will be updating the resource summary as time permits with some additional snippets. I'm glad the Amazon review helped, and I think nothing beats an inside look in a little more detail for people looking for some specific help--from the people who know this best. Us.

    CHANGES SINCE ORIGINAL POSTING: Added review lines for "low-functioning" and "paradigm shift"--which are related, since the phrase "low functioning" loses its meaning when we redefine what normal is, and moreover, what it means to accept diversity.
