Not On Our Shelves - Available to Order


In 2003 a very special package was born into our lives. Our son Steven, who was a miracle birth. My wife conceived when doctors told us it was not possible. Then at 3 years old the enemy threw a monkey wrench into our world and our son was diagnosed with autism. One of the problems with autism is actually the lack of public awareness. To the untrained eye, they seem strange. But to those familiar with the symptoms, behaviors, and mannerisms, the behavior becomes a non-issue. Don't be intimidated by these very special citizens. This book offers exclusive insight into the autistic community with the purpose of quenching the fears and hesitation to engage them as friends. This is the first in a series that we hope will bring unity and understanding between typical and autistic children. Pick up a copy today and one for a friend, then pass them around. Spread the news.
