My Brother is Special, My Brother Has Autism tells the story of a little girl's wish of having a baby brother. It covers the anticipation a big sibling feels as she prepares for her new role in the family. My Brother is Special, My Brother Has Autism highlights the journey of a family as they come to realize that their long awaited little boy is changing from the happy toddler they knew into an introverted less verbal boy. This story, as seen through the eyes of a sibling, expresses the confusion and pain a family feels when a diagnosis of autism is made. The story also highlights the beauty of accepting someone, even though they may be different, and realizing that, sometimes, a dream doesn't end, it just needs to be adjusted. A diagnosis of autism impacts all family members. Adults are able to speak with professionals, explore the internet, and speak with others in similar situations. Young children have less options. It is frightening for them to see the adults in their lives in distress with little understanding of the reason. This book was written for the children impacted by the diagnosis of someone in their family. It is the hope of the author that this book assists parents, teachers, and other adults, in helping children to cope in these situations.

1 in 88 children are diagnosed with autism. Why are these kids autistic? What is autism? My younger brother was diagnosed with autism at age 2, he learns slower than other children and needs more one on one help. For me as a child, I learned a lot as well and the main thing I learned was to be respectful of other people despite their disabilities. I decided to write a book for children who have siblings with autism or want to learn what it is like to grow up having an autistic sibling. Siblings are out best friends and it is important to be there for your sibling. When they need support or someone there, the first person they will look for is you because other than your parents, you know your sibling and know what's best for them.

In 1964, the release of Dr. Bernard Rimland's book, Infantile Autism, revolutionized the autism field by providing the autism community with much-needed guidance on how to understand and treat individuals on the spectrum. He single-handedly realigned the field from a psychodynamic, parent-blaming perspective to a scientific, physiological course of action. This 50th anniversary edition presents the original book with contributions from leaders in the autism field, including Drs. Martha Herbert and Simon Baron-Cohen, who celebrate Dr. Rimland's exceptional work, and place his findings within the context of autism as we understand it today. Bringing Dr. Rimland's findings up to date for a new generation of readers, this book will be fascinating reading for parents and those on the autism spectrum as well as professionals working with autism and anyone with an interest in autism and/or psychological theory.
