Paradiz, the co-founder and director of a school for autistic teens, chronicles her life with her son, Elijah, diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome. Her inspiring narrative celebrates the idiosyncratic beauty of the Asperger mind and the sense of mutual support and self-respect in the Asperger's syndrome community. This paperback edition includes a new chapter bringing readers up to date on Elijah's education and his mother's advocacy work, and an afterword by Elijah himself.
