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.

What is it like to grow up with a sibling on the autism spectrum? What kind of relationship do such siblings have? How does that relationship change as the siblings get older? In this moving collection of beautifully-written personal accounts, siblings from a variety of backgrounds, and in different circumstances, share their experiences of growing up with a brother or sister with autism. Despite their many differences, their stories show that certain things are common to the "sibling experience": the emotional terrain of looking on or being overlooked; the confusion of accommodating resentment, love, and helplessness; and the yearning to connect across neurological difference. Siblings and Autism is a thought-provoking book that will appeal to anyone with a personal or professional interest in autism, including parents of siblings of children on the spectrum, teachers, counsellors, and psychologists.

Autism and Representation

Autism, a neuro-developmental disability, has received wide but often sensationalistic treatment in the popular media. A great deal of clinical and medical research has been devoted to autism, but the traditional humanities disciplines and the new field of Disability Studies have yet to explore it. This volume, the first scholarly book on autism in the humanities, brings scholars from several disciplines together with adults on the autism spectrum to investigate the diverse ways that autism has been represented in novels, poems, autobiographies, films, and clinical discourses, and to explore the connections and demarcations between autistic and "neurotypical" creativity. Using an empathetic scholarship that unites professional rigor with experiential knowledge derived from the contributors’ lives with or as autistic people, the essays address such questions as: In what novel forms does autistic creativity appear, and what unusual strengths does it possess? How do autistic representations--whether by or about autistic people--revise conventional ideas of cognition, creativity, language, (dis)ability and sociability? This timely and important collection breaks new ground in literary and film criticism, aesthetics, psychology, and Disability Studies.

"Will change the way you think about thinking."—Daniel H. Pink, author of A Whole New Mind Renowned behavioral economist and commentator Tyler Cowen shows that our supernetworked world is changing the way we think—and empowering us to thrive in any economic climate. Whether it is micro-blogging on Twitter or buying single songs at iTunes, we can now customize our lives to shape our own specific needs. In other words, we can create our own economy—and live smarter, happier, fuller lives. At a time when apocalyptic thinking has become all too common, Cowen offers a much-needed Information Age manifesto that will resonate with readers of Dan Ariely's Predictably Irrational, Steven Johnson's Everything Bad is Good for You, and everyone hungry to understand our potential to withstand, and even thrive, in any economic climate.

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.
