  1. Have read all the Temple Grandin books…and have met her, multiple times. Great books, great person.

    I am an arts inclusion facilitator (in one of my lives… bridging my Autism Life with my Regular Life)……….haven’t read the Susan R., book but it sounds good! Have read “The Reason I Jump” by Naoki Higashida–quite interesting.

    Have read other Dr. Stanley Greenspan books but not this particular one. His work in NC was ground breaking. I think I have heard Lynn Kern Koegel speak……she makes plenty of sense.

    Try “Born on a Blue Day,” very interesting!

    I also have read a number of autism fiction–where autism is part of the story or a character has autism–and for me, it’s quite entertaining. I’ll post a list in my own Blog over the weekend.


    • Thank you so much for your comment! I loved hearing what you’ve read and who you’ve met– how inspiring. Please comment a link once you compile your own list so others (as well as myself) can check it out.
