The book I wish someone had given me…

26 Jun

It’s been said a number of times, and not just by me: The Thinking Person’s Guide to Autism is a book I wish someone had given me when we first received an autism diagnosis for our kid.

We purchased a few copies of the book.  We gave them to our pediatricians.  We’ve given them to other people.  And, this week, we gave a copy to someone who just got an autism diagnosis for his kid.

A friend approached me with questions, school districts, insurance, etc..  After speaking with him, I took one of our extra copies of TPGA and handed it to him.

    Thanks Sullivan — this is why we do what we do. Really appreciated, thanks for spreading the word.

    If you like the book, you can also donate a copy to your local library. I had a chat with a local acquisitions librarian, and the budget squeeze has really slowed down library acquisitions, especially in the special-interest area. I’ve arranged with local librarians to donate copies.
