Thinking Person's Guide to Autism

Thinking Person's Guide to Autism: Everything You Need to Know from Autistics, Parents, and Professionals: 1 - Jennifer Byde Myers, Shannon Des Roches Rosa, Carol Greenburg, Emily Willingham, Liz Ditz The best easy to read book I've found that cuts through much of clutter and noise regarding autism. This book is especially recommended if you want to steer clear of Jenny McCarthy style pseudoscience. It's an assemblage of years of blog posts by various writers, grouped by subject, covering the wide range of issues that an autism diagnosis raises.While I found some parts more useful than others and skimmed some sections, it's an absolutely essential book for anyone dealing with this diagnosis.
