Alessandro è un bambino in gambissima con un fratello speciale, Michele. La mamma continua a dire "Michele deve guarire!" ma per Alessandro Michele non è malato. Per Alessandro, Michele è suo fratello. Inseguendo il sogno di guarigione ad ogni costo, la famiglia di Alessandro passerà attraverso i rimedi - ufficiali e non - per l'autismo: il "trattamento comportamentale", gli antifungini, gli integratori, le uova di parassita, la camera iperbarica, la chelazione. Al grido di "Michele deve guarire!" Giorgio e Francesca, il papà e la mamma di Alessandro, le proveranno davvero tutte. Uno spaccato dell'assurda vita normale delle famiglie con autismo, raccontata con sagacia e acutezza mai viste prima d'ora.

Iris Grace is a beautiful little girl who, from a very young age, barely communicated, avoided social interaction with other people, and rarely smiled. From both before her diagnosis of autism and after, she seemed trapped in her own world, unable to connect with those around her. One day, her mother brought home a Maine Coon kitten for Iris, even though cats aren’t typically thought of as therapy pets. Thula, named after one of Iris’s favorite African lullabies and meaning “peace” in Zulu, immediately bonded with Iris. Thula knew right away how to assuage Iris when she became overstimulated; when to intervene when Iris became overwhelmed; and how to provide distraction when Iris started heading toward a meltdown. Whether exploring, playing, sleeping, or taking a bath with Iris or accompanying the family on a bike ride, Thula became so much more than a therapy cat. With Thula’s safe companionship, Iris began to talk and interact with her family. This heartwarming story is illustrated with sixty of Iris’s gorgeous impressionistic paintings, works of art that have allowed her to express herself since the age of three. A gifted artist, Iris sees the natural world in a profoundly vivid and visceral way. With Thula by her side, she’ll sit and paint for hours, and the results are stunning. Inspiring and touching, Iris Grace follows the struggles and triumphs of a family—and a miracle cat—as they learn to connect with an amazing child.

“Basta, vado a dormire” è un’emozionante raccolta corale di racconti scritta da genitori, parenti, operatori sanitari che hanno quotidianamente a che fare con il complesso mondo dello spettro autistico. Purtroppo, benché viviamo nella realtà della comunicazione di massa, ben poco si sa sull’autismo e ancor meno si immaginano le difficoltà, i costi, le offese e la mancanza di considerazione con i quali ogni giorno bisogna scendere a patti. Lo scopo di questo libro è dunque in primo luogo quello di informare, e inoltre quello di rendere partecipi i lettori di un grande progetto: fondare in tutta Italia delle case in cui i ragazzi possano sentirsi al sicuro, stringere relazioni, godere giorno dopo giorno di un diritto che ormai si dà per scontato: il diritto a una vita dignitosa.

There is a near hysteria over dramatic increases in autism prevalence at a time when we still don't know what causes the disorder and have no known cures. More and more money is being poured into autism research with conflicting research findings, none of which appear to be getting us closer to prevention or treatment. This book carefully examines the psychology, neuroscience, genetic, and medical research findings to date from autism research and provocatively suggests that what we've labeled "autism" is several different disorders, and the way forward for more effective research for prevention and treatment. Autism is a massive worldwide problem with increasing prevalence rates, now thought to be as high as 1 in 38 children (Korea) and 1 in 100 children (CDC- US) Autism is the 3rd most common developmental disability. 400,000 people in the US alone have autism Autism effects entire brain including communication, social behavior, reasoning and is lifelong There is no known cause and no cure Funding for Autism research quadrupled from 1995 to 2000 up to $45m, and the Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee has recommended $1billion funding from 2010-2015
