With April being Autism Awareness Month in the USA and April 2 being World Autism Day, here are three reading recommendations for the month:
LIVING IN THE EYE: LIFE WITH AUTISM “Inside the eye of autism, I can never turn my brain off from colours, sounds, and a constant storm of thoughts and emotions. And yet, within its whirling walls, the eye is the safest, calmest part of a tornado… my refuge from a world often visited by chaos, unpredictability and frustrations.” Genre: memoir, biography
