The stunning volume features works by more fifty international contributors, from children to established artists, that illustrate the rich multiplicity of the condition."--"The Atlantic"

It is a stunning, thoughtful and yes, HOPEFUL book that is not just for families touched by autism, but for all who are curious about the disorder."--"Examiner"

Over the last decade autism spectrum disorder (ASD) has become an international topic of conversation, knowing no racial, ethnic, or social barriers. Behavior analyst and educator Jill Mullin has assembled a staggering array of work from established artists like Gregory Blackstock, Jessica Park, and Ping Lian Yeak to the unknown but no less talented. Their creations, coupled with artist interviews, comprise a fascinating and compelling book that serves to educate and inspire anyone who knows someone diagnosed with ASD. Jill Mullin's introduction and the foreword by best-selling author Temple Grandin provide an overview of autism and advocate for nurturing the talents, artistic and otherwise, of autistic individuals.

Jill Mullin, AS, MSEd, BCBA, is a behavior analyst and educator who teaches and applies a behavioral approach when working with individuals diagnosed with ASD.

Temple Grandin, PhD, is considered the most accomplished adult with autism. She is the author of several books, including the bestsellers "The Way I See It" and "Animals in Translation."
