Sorry for putting this on the back burner!

In September of last year, I resolved to delve into the positive attitude about autism espoused by several new age thinkers, most prominently, William Stillman. School and life got in the way of that, and I only got as far as The Horse Boy. This was also due to the public library and the university libraries not having any books on the subject. Whether this is a good thing or a bad thing is up for judgement.
So recently I've revived an interest in the subject and turned to the internet to help me find what I want, and I've even compiled a neat little wish list on Amazon of books that I've tabbed as possible review opportunities.
The problem right now is finance. I don't have enough pleasure money to spend on books right now, even at Amazon's terrific secondhand prices.
But once that clears up, I promise to continue this series, starting with Gift From My Son: Autism Redefined.
Wish me luck.


  1. My blog has a very positive attitude to autism. And it's free.

  2. Very true. However, this one is focusing on "New Age" perspectives on autism, aka, people who believe autistic people have some special type of spiritual or ethereal connection with the universe, or possess psychic abilities. Yea...
    There's actually a whole genre devoted to it, and I'm hoping to dig up some dirt on how their perspective, as silly as it is, differs from the typical medical model of looking at autism.

  3. Hey, however long it takes you, I'll read it.

    I'm sure it will be worth waiting for.
