>A whole new world

>Let me set one thing straight: There is such a thing as regression in adults with ASD. I don’t care what the professionals say. There is. I have experienced it, and so have many other adults.

The fact is that I am currently experiencing it. I went to bed without words last night, as I frequently do… only today, when I woke up, they weren’t back. My BSS typed with me. My CI did what she could so that I only had to shake and not and point (pointing has always been and remains unnatural for me).

The back-burner issue of needing AAC is once again very front-burner. It’s urgent. Unless I am at home on my computer, I have no means of communication. My mom gets 5 texts a day, so I can have 5 exchanges with her, and that is all. Some of my staff doesn’t text. When we go out, I have no means to communicate.

Please consider purchasing a copy of my book. If I can sell 19 copies, I can purchase a refurbished iPod touch and will have the communication I so badly need. I will even have voice output, which my computer does not have.

Consider buying a copy to give to a child’s teacher, BCBA, aide, aunts, uncles, doctor, dentist. If just 19 people purchase a copy, I will be good to go. If there is ANYTHING I can do to thank you (answer a question, help with a behavior issue, offer my perspective, color you a picture, send you a poem on an autism-related topic of your choice, anything!) please just shoot me an email and my brain is yours for the picking.

Book link is here.

  1. >Totally agree with the regression thing. I still struggle with things (such as anxiety and sensory issues) sometimes, when others look at me as a 'recovered autistic'. I'm not really there yet. I don't get paid 'til June 1st, but as soon as I do I'll buy your book. 🙂 I don't expect anything back, but I would appreciate if you could shoot me a comment sometime :)I just made blog for my son and to talk about autism awareness, http://thealexfund.blogspot.com

  2. >I haven't been to your blog in a while. I'm so happy to learn that you finally got your book published! I just bought a copy and I'm excited to read it!
