Some of our favorite books about disability, autism, inclusion,a advocacy, parenting, and life.
For over ten years Martin Pistorius was trapped in his own body, fully cognizant, but unable to speak or move. He was surrounded by people who believed he was incapable of thinking and tried desperately to get just one person to notice. His story serves as a wake-up call for all of us to drastically change our assumptions about speech and intellectual capacity as well as the need to radically reform expectations and treatment of people with complex communication needs.
" Talk to people with disabilities. As many as you can: Adults, adolescents, kids. These people are the real experts on disabilities. These are the people that can tell you what life with a disability is like." Renee Salas
Great e-book for Autism Acceptance Month !
The title of the book should be enough for anyone who wants to know, know more or know anything, about autism and Autistics to buy it and read it.
