Title: Growing in to Autism

Author: Sandra Thom-Jones

Reviewer: Rhonda Bruce

Audience: Parents and Teachers

When I eat anything, whether a three-course meal or a handful of peanuts, I chew the food evenly on both sides of my mouth. The first piece I chew in the left, the second I chew on the right, then I repeat this until it's all eaten. Each piece of food needs to be the same size. (P 80)

An enlightening and captivating memoir by a university researcher who writes about her journey with autism. It is both personal and poignant at times, with chapters dealing with particular aspects of autism; sensory overloads, deficits in social interactions, hypersensitivity, relationships and autistic strengths. A very interesting book, giving insights into how autism affects her everyday life. Recommended for both parents and teachers of students with autism.
