10 Tips on How to Communicate with Autistic People by Steve Summers
Your site is fabulous! I just discovered it, and finally a voice of reason in the sea of hysteria and misery! I have two fabulous daughters on the spectrum – Lizzie a 15 year-old with Asperger’s who loves Broadway musicals and writing, and Caroline, a 13 year-old with autism who loves the color pink and can kick anyone’s butt at MarioKart on Wii. I do not view them as deficient, but just as uniquely and wonderfully themselves.
I have written a book about autism and girls, a much ignored segment of our population, and it was released in March by Jessica Kingsley Publishers. The title is Parenting Girls on the Autism Spectrum: Overcoming the Challenges and Celebrating the Gifts. It is inspired by my girls, but it is a well-researched and practical resource book to comfort and help parents of girls on the spectrum. Would you consider reviewing it on your blog? I could have the publisher send you a copy from the London office. I am in the US in upstate New York.
Here is a link to the book on Amazon:
Thanks so much for all you do for our kids!
Thank you for your kind comments. I would love to review your book. Should I contact your publisher?
My hat is off to your austte command over this topic-bravo!
I have a 28 month old daughter dx’d with moeradte autism, global delays, non-verbal and will be dx’d with dyspraxia when she turns 3. She started mild SIB about 9 months ago and so far we do the chewy tube and vibrating toothbrush to redirect her. I have watched some of your videos since I first suspected autism and you have shown so much courage and strength. I think you are the most awesome mom and you are so beyond calm, Jamey is such a handsome young man.I truly thank you for sharing.VA:F [1.9.14_1148]please wait…VA:F [1.9.14_1148](from 0 votes)
If you want to email me directly, I can send your info to the publisher and have the book sent ASAP. Or you can call Jessica Kingsley and I will let them know that you are interested in reviewing the book, and you can set up the mailing that way. Thanks so much. I am so excited for you to read my book!

You are a great mother. Thank you for potnsig these videos. My own son is severely Autistic and thank God for my inlaws who support us 10000%. People judge us also, and on occasion have mentioned group homes etc We love Jory and think of him as a blessing and NOT a burden. I wish these people would just mind their business. James is a beautiful young man, I can’t wait to see more.ChristinaVA:F [1.9.14_1148]please wait…VA:F [1.9.14_1148](from 0 votes)
Where do you get his chew necklaces? I have AS and need soimnehg like that myself. I find myself chewing on things without really notcing. I’ve destroyed countless wacom pens and chewing gum isn’t the right consistancy. I need the sensation of something in my mouth. Your son is lucky to have a mother like you who truely cares about his well being and dosen’t throw him away in an instution or group home.VA:F [1.9.15_1155]please wait…VA:F [1.9.15_1155](from 0 votes)
Hello, Were you able to get the book from the publishers? Do you need me to contact them again? Thanks! Eileen
(or meant) “doesn’t revolve arnuod autism”. For God’s sake, my life revolves arnuod autism. lol. I used a smiley face, told you good luck in your journey, and I honestly mean that. 🙂 It makes no sense that you’re stopping your blog, that you’re finding autism to be manageable, and yet I would say that it must be nice to be in a place where your life revolves arnuod your son. I could have sworn I said “doesn’t revolve”…can’t imagine why it would have posted any other way. 🙂
