Come to Life! Your Guide to Self-Discovery is a guidebook that will benefit any young adult, whether on the autism spectrum or not. This book is a must for any parent who feels as if they are falling off a cliff as their child ages out of the public school system. Every educator and related service professional needs to read Come to Life! and share it with parents, teens and adults who can benefit from it. --Elaine Hall, Author of Now I See the Moon and founder of The Miracle Project
This book is a wonderful look inside a young adult on the autism spectrum, literally 'starting a life'. Tom turns his hopes, dreams and experiences into a set of usable tools to help other young people. His insights are dead on, and will give readers new opportunities to help themselves. --Caren Zucker, Award-winning journalist, parent and co-author of In a Different Key
Come to Life! is a powerful gift from Tom and Emily Iland to the autism/disability community! I started doing the activities with my 14-year-old son and was so grateful to finally have an appropriate road map to talk about the future with him. Within minutes my son and I were actually talking about what is important to him and what that might mean in his decision-making process. Kudos to the Ilands for writing the book we all so desperately need! --Shannon Penrod, Autism Mom, Host of Autism Live
About the Author
Tom Iland was diagnosed with autism at age 13. Life has not been easy, and he has worked hard to meet many of his goals, including driving, living on his own, graduating from college and having a girlfriend. After becoming a certified public accountant and working for several big companies, he decided to walk away from that career to work full-time helping others find their way in the world.
Come to Life! Your Guide to Self-Discovery is Tom's first book and his passion project. He shares insights and things he has learned through experience to help other young people create the lives they want for themselves, as he has done.
Tom's co-author is also his mom, autism specialist Emily Iland, M.A. She's an award-winning author, advocate, film-maker, researcher and leader. Emily has extensive experience training police about autism and similar disabilities. This led her to create BE SAFE The Movie, using video modeling to show young people how to interact safely with the police.
Emily is also the author of Drawing A Blank: Improving Comprehension for Readers on the Autism Spectrum, a best-selling educational book. Come to Life! is the first volume of two on the subject of transition. In volume two, Emily and Tom will be expanding on how to improve transition planning.
