My book, a gift to you today!

7/25 Today is the day to discover my book, Autism & the Rest of Us: How to Sustain a Healthy, Functional and Satisfying Relationship with a Person on the Autism Spectrum.

It’s estimated that there are 4.5 million people in the United States alone with autism today. An even more staggering fact, which I point out in my new bestseller, Autism & the Rest of Us, is that there are (at a minimum) an average of three or four others who love each one of those autistic people, who care about them in a personal or intimate way, and possibly another five or six who work with them, and who need to deal with them on a day-to-day basis. That means there are at least ten people who are invested in the lives of every individual on the spectrum.

The ‘rest of us’ are those who are in a relationship with someone on the spectrum, whether it’s a family relationship such as a parent, spouse, sibling or child, or a less intimate relationship such as a boss or coworker, or a patient if you are a therapist or doctor, or a student if you are a teacher. The truth is that many of us are probably in relationships with people on the spectrum, whether we know it or no.

Autism spectrum disorder needs to be understood, certainly, but incorporating and respecting individuals who are living with it into our society seems much more appropriate and achievable than finding a magic bullet to obliterate it. Our efforts are better spent finding ways to sustain relationships with, and improve the life experience of both our loved ones on the spectrum and ourselves as well.

I am the mother of 2 sons, one diagnosed with Asperger’s and one with ADHD. As you can imagine, I have decades of experience in the trenches with Asperger’s Syndrome and autism spectrum disorders. In addition to my essential life experience creating functional, nurturing and balanced relationships with my son and others, I was mentored by clinical expert Timothy Wahlberg, PhD during the writing of his clinical guide, Finding the Gray: Understanding and Thriving in the Black and White World of Autism and Asperger’s. Through insights into the thoughts, experiences and challenges of those on the spectrum AND of ‘the rest of us,’ I hope to continue to build a bridge to hope and a better future for us all.
