Editorial Reviews

From the Author

I spent the first half of my childhood in Asia, and the second half in South America. I then lived as an adult in the U.S.A. Today, I work as a data scientist. I had a fun but messy life. Many things in my life seemed totally purposeless and incoherent. Then my two children came to the world. Like my data, they did not talk, either. However, they had the sweetest laughter. In my effort trying to communicate with them, I came to understand myself, and found out who I really was. Like them, I was autisitic, I just lived my whole life without knowing it. All the puzzle pieces started to fall into place, and I realized that every meaningless step in my earlier life actually had a purpose: all those past steps helped me to understand my children.
I compare raising my children with autism to a road trip to Chilean Patagonia: the road is bumpy, and numerous bridges/ferries are needed along the way. But it's a beautiful journey with breathtaking scenery at every stretch.
"It takes an autistic person to understand another autistic person." That is the motto of my wife. Yes, I do have a message to share, and that is: autism is a communication problem, once you solve the communication problem, everything else will fall in place. I hope other families with children with autism can benefit from this message and grow stronger together.

From the Back Cover

... It all changed the day when I understood Ivan: yes, Ivan was visual, but he was a video-memory person, not a picture-memory person! After I found out the nature of Ivan's memory, things developed really fast. Finally I started to have a string of successes with him. He learned to look at my drawings, learned to read, and learned to call me Papa! Best of all, we became closer friends. Nothing was more rewarding than when I could finally communicate with my child. In short, I learned to speak his language.
... To me, autism is a communication problem. You solve the communication problem, and everything else will fall in place.
Make simple joys affordable

Jason H.J. Lu spent the first half of his childhood in Asia and the second half in South America. He then lived as an adult in the U.S.A. He received his PhD in Theoretical Physics from Stanford University in 1992. Today, he works as a data scientist. Previously, Jason has been a software developer for children’s educational games. And much earlier in his life, he worked as a farmer, growing corn, pumpkins, and watermelons and making friends with farm animals.

Jason's has lived a fun life that hopped through seemingly incoherent steps. As a child, Jason assembled his first radio circuit when his was nine years old. He learned to play musical instruments like the bugle and the recorder. He learned advanced calculus in college and then Quantum Field Theory in graduate school. He liked to doodle and sneaked a cute cartoon picture into his PhD thesis that cried “Help me! I don't want to become a human...” He has used fancy programming techniques as a software developer. As of lately, he applies machine-learning algorithms to solve business world problems.

Jason couldn't make sense out of his fun life, until his two children came to the world. Like the data Jason worked with, his children also did not talk. However, they had the sweetest smiles. In his effort to communicate with his children, Jason came to understand himself, and found out who he really was. Like them, Jason was autistic: he just lived his whole life without knowing it. All the puzzle pieces started to fall into place, and he realized that every single meaningless step in his earlier life actually had a purpose: all those past steps helped him understand his children.

Jason speaks five and a half languages: Taiwanese Minnan, Mandarin Chinese, Spanish, English, Portuguese, and some Vietnamese. Jason enjoys interacting with people from all cultural backgrounds.
