Looking Ahead to the Future of Autism Study and Care Autism and Tomorrow is a comprehensive resource that addresses many parents’ questions pertaining to their child with autism, such as financial planning, long-term care, employment options, and employer relationships, community resources, education, bullying, puberty, doctor visits, sex, nutrition, fitness, family relationships, and more. Karen L. Simmons, the founder and CEO of Autism Today, and Bill Davis, author of Breaking Autism’s Barriers, offer sound, expert advice derived from their own experiences. Both Simmons and Davis are parents of children with autism; consequently, Autism and Tomorrow is as much an autobiography as it is a reference book. Both authors draw inspiration directly from their own lives and apply their expertise to the general study of the subject. By doing so, Simmons and Davis hope to help other parents, caretakers, relatives, and friends improve both their knowledge of autism, and as a result, the lives of those affected by it.

*A New York Times Bestseller* A warm and hilarious memoir by a man diagnosed with Asperger syndrome who sets out to save his relationship. Five years after David Finch married Kristen, the love of his life, they learned that he has Asperger syndrome. The diagnosis explained David’s ever-growing list of quirks and compulsions, but it didn’t make him any easier to live with. Determined to change, David set out to understand Asperger syndrome and learn to be a better husband with an endearing zeal. His methods for improving his marriage involve excessive note-taking, performance reviews, and most of all, the Journal of Best Practices: a collection of hundreds of maxims and hard-won epiphanies, including “Don’t change the radio station when she’s singing along” and “Apologies do not count when you shout them.” David transforms himself from the world’s most trying husband to the husband who tries the hardest. He becomes the husband he’d always meant to be. Filled with humor and wisdom, The Journal of Best Practices is a candid story of ruthless self-improvement, a unique window into living with an autism spectrum condition, and proof that a true heart is the key to happy marriage.

I had a childhood unlike most children. I grew up with a brother who was diagnosed with low functioning autism. My childhood and teenage years were very challenging and I often wondered if I would be my brothers next care taker, if I would be able to go to college, and how my future and his future would be. We were told that my brother was qualified for help and services and my parents fought for that help. It was beyond difficult and something no family with a special needs child should have to do. There is help out there for every autistic child but they prevent you from getting it. My mom made a risky and hard decision to get my brother the care he needs that my parents can no longer give him. It was getting to be to much for my parents and myself. No family should have to fight to get their child the services and care they need. I hope this book helps siblings, parents, grandparents, cousins, or anyone who knows someone with autism. I want to share my own story of what my life was like growing up with a brother with autism. It was a life much different from most children but it was truly a blessing and I wouldn't change it for the world.
