Elijah's Cup

by Valerie Paradiz - £14.99  Jessica Kinglsey Publishers (2005)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781843108023 | ISBN 10: 184310802x

From her first inklings of Elijah's difference, to her discovery of a whole spectrum of another way of life that includes everything from civil rights organizations for autistics to Asperger artists, Valerie Paradiz describes how she decided to cross what she calls 'cultural boundaries' to overcome her fears about her son's Asperger Syndrome.
 
Her inspiring narrative celebrates the idiosyncratic beauty of the Asperger mind and the sense of mutual support and self respect in the ASD community.
 
This new paperback edition includes a contribution from Elijah and a new chapter that brings the story up-to-date: the author successfully sets up a specialist educational unit for Asperger pupils, Elijah experiences his first two years of school, and the author's dawning recognition of her own Asperger's Syndrome leads to major life changes.
