Do you have any idea what it's like to be a person with autism in 2017? If the answer is no, then you're not alone. Most people have no idea what it feels like to be autistic. In fact, parents, siblings, high school teachers and college professors all admit to an amazing lack of understanding about autism and communication with people on the spectrum. Some may have had difficulties understanding a non-verbal child with autism. Others may have a brother with whom they wish communication would be more fulfilling. And in the classroom or the workplace, some might encounter students or employees who need accommodations to get their work done. Behind The Locked Door is a guide to understanding autism. And it will help readers more effectively communicate with people on the spectrum. Written for parents, educators, employers and for people eager to learn more about autism and disabilities, this book gives readers: - Practical insights into handling challenging communications barriers with people on the spectrum. - Insight into difficulties in life for people on the spectrum, including hygiene, social situations, speaking, motivation, trouble at school and work, and more. - Actionable steps for enjoying more successful relationships with people who have autism. - Behavioral techniques used by parents to help their children on the spectrum live a better life. Paul Louden has spent his entire life preparing to let the public inside the mind of a person with autism. Paul is a public speaker, radio show host, autism advocate and a 34-year-old man with autism. He works tirelessly to help educators, employers and parents better the lives of people with autism.

This highly acclaimed book is based on Gayle Nobel's 34 years of coping with the challenges of raising an autistic son combined with her more recent insights as a transformative life coach. Through deeply honest, inspiring personal stories and insightful poetry, Gayle takes the reader on an amazing journey as she explores the power of thought, resilience, wisdom, innate well-being, and most of all love in creating the experience of living with autism. Space of Love is not just for those touched in some way by autism, but for anyone seeking to discover and release their own natural resilience. Readers may shed a few tears, smile, and walk away with a totally new awareness of the human experience after reading Space of Love. Gayle teaches us helpful life lessons, shining new light on some of the sensitive or daunting situations we all experience such as feeling out of control, the inability to accept change, make tough decisions or overcome fear of the future. Gayle asks the difficult questions and shares answers that could serve as a catalyst to releasing fresh insights about autism and other life experiences that affect us all.

Mary Ann Puckett's book addresses the question that so many parents of children with autism are asking, "Who will be there to care for my child when I am gone?" The unfortunate reality is that as caregivers and parents are aging out, this becomes a major issue that society is facing due to the increasing number of children and adults who are being diagnosed on the spectrum. Her book also describes how vaccines, which contain toxins such as mercury, reportedly play a role in the exponentially growing number of children who now have autism. Due to her many years of experience, Mary Ann makes suggestions in her book of therapies and natural treatments that can be helpful for parents as they face the daily challenges and hurdles on their journey with autism. The book is a must read for not only parents and caregivers, but also teachers, doctors, nurses, therapists, and the general public.

Autistic people are empirically and scientifically generalized as living in a fragmented, alternate reality, without a coherent continuous self. In Part I, this book presents recent neuropsychological research and its implications for existing theories of autism, selfhood, and identity, challenging common assumptions about the formation and structure of the autistic self and autism’s relationship to neurotypicality. Through several case studies in Part II, the book explores the ways in which artists diagnosed with autism have constructed their identities through participation within art communities and cultures, and how the concept of self as ‘story’ can be utilized to better understand the neurological differences between autism and typical cognition. This book will be of particular interest to researchers and scholars within the fields of Disability Studies, Art Education, and Art Therapy.

Autism is a condition which renders the sufferer incapable of understanding meaning "beyond the information given." The autistic person has a purely literal relationship with reality and has difficulty in developing imagination. The author of this insightful book regards autistic people as "hyperrealist" in a world of "surrealism" that we call "normal". This book not only provides a deep understanding of the condition to help caregivers to adapt to the autistic person's way of thinking, but also offers practical intervention strategies for education and treatment. The numerous quotes from parents and autistic people throughout the book provide the reader with very valuable insights.
