Secondhand Autism

cover final

Description: Diagnoses of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in children are happening at an increasing rate. The autism spectrum is very wide and includes many different expressions of symptoms. Regardless of the severity of autism in a child, autism isn’t an individual disorder. Autism affects everyone in the family. Secondhand Autism presents an autobiographical sketch of the author’s experience with autism. His youngest brother is diagnosed with autistic disorder, on the lower functioning end of the autism spectrum. Combining personal experience with education from Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in psychology, the author presents an easy to read description of what family members might expect when a child or sibling is diagnosed as autistic.

Ajax’s Whimsical Revolution

cover3Description: A collection of academic quality (and some not) essays, humorous observations and philosophic pondering on a wide range of subjects. Ajax’s Whimsical Revolution was the author’s primary blog for about two years before he moved on to another format. The content was too good to leave to the dark recesses of the Internet, so 78 posts were compiled and submitted as a Kindle eBook. Guaranteed to make you laugh or say “wow! that’s interesting!” at least once. It is a limited guarantee.

Print Length: 230 pages
