Product Details

Praise

Sincerely, Your Autistic Child is an essential anthology edited and written by Autistic people. Parents and Autistic children need to know the wisdom of Autistic adults who show that infinite futures are possible. I can’t wait to share and recommend this book—what a gift.”
—Alice Wong, editor of Disability Visibility: First-Person Stories from the Twenty-First Century

“Autism is no one thing, and there are so many experiences that have never been shared. This book is a great start to showing the diversity that lives on the spectrum. Anybody who thinks differently, and anybody who loves someone who thinks differently, will find this collection invaluable.”
—Hannah Gadsby, writer and comedian
