"I Am David, A Journey to the Soul of Autism" is the first book in a series, "A Journey to the Soul of Autism". It is a collection of case studies of autistic children and adults that the authors have worked with over the last 20-40 years. The purpose of the book is to encourage a new understanding and perspective of those living with autism. That is a perspective of respect and including the person with autism as part of the educational and program development, regardless of their cognitive level or behavioral challenges. Our job is to read the verbal and non-verbal cues of our autistic brothers and sisters to discern the best practices and strategies in our attempt to help them become successful in their lives from childhood to adulthood.

From the New York Times bestselling co-author of Plague of Corruption comes an explosive exposé of the CDC cover-up of the dangerous consequences of the MMR vaccine. In November of 2013, Simpson University biology professor Dr. Brian Hooker got a call from Dr. William Thompson, a senior scientist at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) working in vaccine safety. Their conversations would lead to explosive revelations that top officials at the CDC engaged in a systematic cover-up of data showing that earlier administration of the MMR vaccine caused increased rates of autism in children, particularly African American males. Many have claimed this is the greatest medical crime against African Americans since the infamous Tuskegee syphilis experiments. Thompson would eventually turn over thousands of the documents to US Congressman William Poesy. Science teacher and New York Times bestselling co-author of Plague of Corruption, Kent Heckenlively, was granted access to this unprecedented trove of documents and uses them, as well as ground-breaking interviews with many of the key players in this debate, to tell the story of how vaccines have become a three-decades long disaster since passage of the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act which gave pharmaceutical companies complete immunity for damages caused by their products. This updated version contains startling revelations from Dr. Andrew Zimmerman, the government's main medical witness, that as early as 2007 government attorneys were aware that at least one third of autism cases were connected to vaccinations.

Like Colour to the Blind

Like Colour to the Blind is also the story of Alex, who was misdiagnosed as 'retarded' as well as autistic, and so gripped by 'exposure anxiety' that he has been virtually non-communicative all his life.

In Like Colour to the Blind, Donna Williams enters the most exposing and fragile realm of human interaction: her relationship and eventual marriage with someone with whom she can 'simply be', a relationship she terms a 'specialship'. But loving involves exposure, and to love she must expose the very things which protected her all her life - the masks she has hidden behind, the patchwork creations which stood in place of self. In Donna's relationship with Ian, a man with difficulties related to her own, we watch the two of them break through their rock-solid emotional barriers and dare to defy all the rules imposed by the autistic condition of 'exposure anxiety'. Their struggle is told with Donna's characteristic humour, insight and sense of fragility. Like Colour to the Blind is also the story of Alex, who was misdiagnosed as 'retarded' as well as autistic, and so gripped by 'exposure anxiety' that he has been virtually non-communicative all his life. Alex's fear of being left behind by Donna and Ian inspires him to push fiercely beyond the boundaries of his limitations and, in his own words, `to fly'.

A touching glimpse into the world of autism, with supplementary articles by the author and Georg Kuhlewind. Juliana thought often about the child with the sun's rays playing in her blonde hair and whose eyes told stories of heaven. She thought about her delicate frame and inexhaustible energy. The young woman was grateful to have met this little girl. . . . Melanie B�s introduces us to the world of autism and the struggle of one child to break out of it. This is a story of being-rather than not awake enough in the world-of being too awake. It is about falling through the cracks because of being misunderstood, not being believed, not being seen by the so-called normal world. Yet it is also a story of two souls (the child and the student teacher), of recognition, of unconditional love, of miraculous discoveries.

This beautifully illustrated, moving and revelatory book will inspire readers to see that it is often that which gives us the deepest sorrow in life that can bring us the greatest joy.'Welcome to my world. I have autism. 'But A Painful Gift is not about my autism. It is about the struggle to be truly ourselves in the world. To be fully human, to touch people and to be touched by people in return. 'Autism is a blessing, a gifted way of seeing the world. It is also deeply misunderstood. There is much talk of finding a cure for autism, but it is only our inability to accept difference that cries out to be remedied. 'Although autism is a gift, it can be a painful gift. I have shared my woundedness in full so that you might be given the strength to bring to light your woundedness. Great love and great suffering are part of the spiritual journey. Suffering can not only break us down, it can also break us open. This book is a pilgrimage of the mind to the heart and is a testimony to the fact that it is not the absence of affliction that makes us who we are, but our faithfulness in adversity that is the deeper measure. 'My deepest prayer is that all who read this book will be inspired to see that it is often that which gives us the deepest sorrow in life that can bring us the greatest joy.' Christopher Goodchild

Donna Williams was a child with more labels than a jam-jar: deaf, wild disturbed, stupid insane... She lived within herself, her own world her foreground, ours a background she only visited. Isolated from her self and from the outside world, Donna was, in her words, a Nobody Nowhere. She swung violently between these two worlds, battling to join our world and, simultaneously, to keep it out. Abandoned from all connection to the self within her, she lived as a ghost with a body, a patchwork of the images which bombarded her. Intact but detached from the seemingly incomprehensible world around her, she lived in what she called 'a world under glass`.After twenty-five years of being misunderstood, and unable to understand herself, Donna stumbled upon the word 'autism': a label, but one which held up a mirror and made sense of her life and struggles, and gave her a chance to finally forgive both herself and those around her.Nobody Nowhere is disturbing, eloquent and ticklishly funny: it is an account of the soul of someone who lived the word 'autism' and survived in an unsympathetic environment despite intense inner chaos and incomprehension. It describes how, against the odds, Donna came to live independently, achieve a place at university, and write this remarkable autobiography. It is now an international bestseller, sold in over 14 languages throughout the world. This is a book that will stay with you as one of the most exceptional works you will ever read.
