You might already be familiar with this extraordinary mother-son duo. Chantal is an autism expert, an award winning author, a public speaker, and the founder of AutismCollege.com. As for Jeremy, he is an inspirational story in his own right. Diagnosed as severely autistic at birth, he graduated high school twenty-one years later with a 3.78 GPA, gave his commencement speech (a landmark event that was covered by NBC and FOX), and is now attending community college and thriving as a contributing writer for his college newspaper. His journey was documented in MTV’s True Life “I have Autism” episode.
In A FULL LIFE WITH AUTISM, Chantal and Jeremy address the issues few people want to talk about: such as sex and autism; abuse by caregivers; establishing financial well being with autism; making friends when you’re autistic, and the toll an autistic family member takes on the entire family.
A truly groundbreaking book, I believe that the book’s educational yet personal message would be a great read.
