This lady truly is an amazing story. I heard her talk at a autism conference once and she truly has a story to tell. She explains autism from a child's point of view because she is autistic. She has quite the story.

Here is her website:

I highly recommend you read her books. Although at times, they are a little difficult - they tell her story. She is one amazing lady!!
