5.0 out of 5 stars I am an Autistic Adult and I Have an Autistic Child - We Both Thank Silberman Immensely for Shedding This Light
Reviewed in the United States on 10 February 2016
I pre-ordered this book, and I'm so glad I did! I don't often talk to others about the autism books I read, mostly because NT's don't seek the same answers those of us on the spectrum seek. But this one masterpiece that Silberman has put together is the biggest of exceptions. He basically said what I've been theorizing all along, and seeing all the work and research put into finding some answers put into this one book gave me a more hopeful outlook on my life and the future of my son's life. He is also on the autism spectrum. We've come so far in our understanding of neurodiversity, but there is still much work to be done. Silberman has opened a door to a different and better approach to embracing and accommodating those who think differently.
