This book portrays autism. Profoundly personally. From the deep dark inside out. Compelling photography a passionate text connects us to the shades of autism. The collective experiences herein describe in beautiful prose a journey through hope, despair, pain and resurrection.
The selfish character of autism.
The typical one way relationships.
Eyes which focus half way.
Twilight falls and we find ourselves again in darkness.
In our sleep we dream of colors.
And woven throughout, this project brings forth beautiful witnesses to the power of God's grace. And lights the way to redemtion with love.
Hands down without doubt this is the best book to bring YOU into that beneath the surface, into the drowning existence of autism.
Autism and its related condition, Asperger's Syndrome are neurobiological conditions that affect sensory processing and communication. Autism is as varied as there are individuals and the behavior reflects that individuality. I like the way this book gently illustrates that and invites readers to sing and dance in victory, celebrating the Autism Experience!
Please read this with Autism Heroes: Portraits of Families Meeting the Challenge and share these books with someone. You will want to celebrate!
My favorite part was when it talked about relationships and how each relationship is to be treasured. I teach four wonderful, dynamic, and fabulous individuals who enlighten my life daily. I feel fortunate to be able to call each of them my friend.
The references to the "victory dances" was also another favorite part. We call them "Happy dances" at my school. Walk by the classroom and you are sure to see a teacher or student happy dancing all around!
The most important thing that I took away from the book is a comforted feeling that there are more people out in the world like the dedicated teachers at my school. It is sometimes a hard struggle to educate the world about autism and it is comforting to know there are people all around who believe in how wonderful our kids are. To those of you on behalf of my four guys and all those lifes that have been touched by you, thank you for all that you do. I don't have to say, "keep up the good work", because we all know that there is nothing that we would not do to help our friends out.
As a parent of an autistic child you feel alone. No one you know understands what your life is like, no one outside your family understands your child. This book lifts the veil a little bit for those who have not personally experienced living with autism.
