The Autism Answer Book

Another book I picked up is The Autism Answer Book, by William Stillman. I will be adding my highlighted sections from the book here so that people can share in what I'm reading, especially those near and dear to Joey and how it pertains to him.

What is Autism?
pg.2 ~ "(Autism) has been used to describe individuals who appear to be self-contained or who exist in their own little world, an inner realm seemingly set apart from others. ~ Autism is a common neurological anomaly that may preclude the body from properly receiving signals transmitted by the brain, resulting in misfires and disconnects. ~ Those who are Autistic are inherently gentle and exquisitely sensitive."
