41 reasons why April is Autism Awareness Month
“When you’ve met one person with autism, you’ve met one person with autism.” Chantal Sicile-Kira wisely positions this anonymously sourced quote at the front of her book 41 Things to Know About Autism. Those 13 well-chosen words capture the truism of what it means to be human. We are all unique — autism or no autism notwithstanding. Sicile-Kira approaches the immensity of the autism spectrum and the individuals on it by compiling a readable, 200-plus pages of FAQs– frequently asked questions — for readers who know little and for those who think they know a lot about autism. Chances are, whichever category you think you fall into, you’ll learn something from this helpful, approachable book. It is part explainer, part advice, part hand-holder. Sicile-Kira, whose son Jeremy is autistic, has been featured on cable television and in Newsweek magazine. She has written several books on autism including Adolescents on the Autism Spectrum.
