A Different Kind of Boy: A Father’s Memoir About Raising a Gifted Child with Autism

The author invites us to share his experiences as his son’s perspective of the world is revealed to him. Although Daniel recognizes that Alex has challenges with communication and social demands, as well as sensory processing, the struggles that Daniel experiences in trying to grasp the reality of Alex’s world are profound. We see Daniel ping pong from intense pride in Alex’s achievements to complete bafflement and frustration at Alex’s inability to communicate basic wants and needs. Daniel also clearly describes the anguish he and his wife face as they advocate for Alex’s integration with typical peers. The book is honest, humorous, and poignant.
