 Beyond the Wall: Personal Experiences with Autism and Asperger Syndrome

In this truly sensitive autobiography, Dr. Shore invites us to join him as he revisits his life with autism which began at 18 months when he lost speech and exhibited the behaviours that led to his diagnosis. Dr Shore recounts the challenges he had to overcome in primary, middle and high school, college, university and the careers he explored. He provides crucial information for parents and educators about the inherent social and learning subtleties which can create chaos and confusion for the individual with ASD. Furthermore, he offers helpful insights, practical suggestions, and pro-active strategies to insure that all individuals with ASD are afforded opportunities to live meaningful, inclusive lives.

This is a courageous book as this author had to revisit a past which was often painful and confusing. Now married, a well respected educator, speaker, and advocate for persons with ASD, Dr. Shore continues to share his advice on how to navigate the neurotypical world successfully.
