Autism covers a broad spectrum, which affects 1 in every 91 children born. Nearly every twenty minutes a child is diagnosed with ASD. While every family will react to the challenges of autism differently, at some point all parents will ask themselves what will become of their child when they grow up? “How will my child fare in a world that does not slow down for their heightened sensitivities?” “Will my son or daughter ever live independently?”
The Art of Autism: Shifting Perceptions illuminates the special talents of unique individuals and their families and shows how love and determination can create an unexpected and extraordinary journey; how the human spirit can triumph over adversity. The Art of Autism: Shifting Perceptions is a breathtaking journey into the hearts and minds of 77 artists and poets of all ages, from all parts of the world. Through the power of vibrant images and colorful stories, The Art of Autism dares to challenge the notion that autism is necessarily a dark and lonely journey, and seeks to shift our perceptions to see that autism can indeed glow in the dark.
