Monday, Nov 19, 2012

Editors Anderson & Forman, both writers and parents of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), have compiled an anthology of essays and verse detailing experiences with ASD either as parents, teachers, advocates and therapists. All of the contributors are experienced writers and parents of children with ASD who candidly share their journeys and life changing experiences as they navigate the world of ASD. John Elder Robison (Look Me in the Eye) shares his unique insight as a person with ASD and a parent of a child with ASD in an enlightening forward to this anthology. The contributors share not only slices of their lives, but also how when ASD becomes a part of your life, it can change your outlook on life and make you re-evaluate what is really important.

Gravity Pulls You In is a support group that’s always in session, minus the autism politics and competition at your fingertips! What parents of children with ASD can gain from this volume is a feeling of not being alone in a situation or circumstance that they can relate to as they navigate the world of ASD. Professionals can gain a better understanding of what their clients/patients (and their parents) deal with on a daily basis.
