Editorial Reviews

Review

“Senator hits the nail on the head once again . . . This is a must-read for any parent with a child on the autism spectrum as well as care­givers, siblings, and extended family.” – Library Journal (starred review)

"As an emotional resource, Senator's book is excellent." —Kirkus, for Autism Adulthood

"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.

“In her frank and deeply touching new book, Susan Senator faces the big issues—housing, employment, relationships with siblings, finding trustworthy caregivers—head-on, and offers practical strategies for giving young autistic people the best chance to lead happy and secure lives, mapping a pathway to the future. She offers a blueprint for a world in which people at every point on the spectrum are treated as fellow citizens who deserve respect and the ability to make choices.” —Steve Silberman, author of NeuroTribes: The Legacy of Autism and the Future of Neurodiversity

"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 Autism Adulthood for parents and teachers who are guiding individuals in the middle range within the broad autism spectrum." --Temple Grandin, author of The Autistic Brain, and Thinking in Pictures

"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, co-author of Overcoming Autism, with Dr. Lynn Kern Koegel

"From the introduction, Autism Adulthood: Strategies and Insights for a Fulfilling 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

"Many readers will find comfort in her advice and helpful concluding list of resources." --Booklist

Susan Senator is mother of three sons, the oldest of whom has fairly severe autism. Senator is the author of one novel "Dirt: A Story About Gardening, Mothering, and Other Messy Business," and two autism parenting books, "Making Peace With Autism: One Family's Story of Struggle, Discovery, and Unexpected Gifts," and "The Autism Mom's Survival Guide: Creating a Happy and Balanced Life While Raising a Child With Autism." Senator's third book is "Autism Adulthood: Insights and Creative Strategies for a Fulfilling Life." She began her writing career in 1984, as an escape, while working on her Master's Thesis at the University of Pennsylvania. She ultimately wrote four novels, and in 1997 published her first autism parenting article in Exceptional Parent Magazine. This led to many, many articles on various aspects of autism, parenting, and family life in places like The New York Times, The Boston Globe, and The Washington Post, all of which, along with her blog, can be found at susansenator.com. Senator has appeared on the Today Show, CNN, MSNBC, and NPR's Weekend America. She was also a guest at a dinner at the White House in honor of Eunice Kennedy Shriver and Special Olympics, where she met the President. Senator's first book, "Making Peace With Autism," was given the Exceptional Parent Magazine Award of Distinction. Senator's philosophy is that it is certainly possible to have a happy family life even given the difficult context of autism -- it's just not what you might have expected.
