Intimate, bold, and inspiring, Dr. Barbara Firestone's Autism Heroes provides a compelling and sensitive account of the experiences of 38 families from different walks of life confronting the challenges of autism spectrum disorders with courage, tenacity and love.
With empathy and expertise gained from her three decades of leadership of The Help Group and commitment to children with special needs, Dr. Firestone engages the families in powerful and deeply affecting conversations about their lives. The family narratives are set against the backdrops of her insightful essays about the dignity, hope, opportunity and love that are so fundamentally important to all families living with autism.
Fully illustrated with stunning and evocative photographs by Joe Buissink, Autism Heroes is an invaluable resource for families as well as educators, clinicians, researchers and policy makers.
