I am so happy I stumbled across Stephen Borgman’s wonderful article in Psychology Today from back in 2011! He talks about some fabulous teachers he’s learned from. I kept nodding my head as I read, recognizing name after name, and when I got to John Elder Robison’s name I went nuts.
I recently finished reading “Look Me In the Eye” and yesterday I bought “Be Different.” I would so love to meet John. To have my son talk with him. To have John Elder Robison come and talk to the individuals and families in our Asperger’s support group. He’s truly inspirational.
Anyway, read Borgman’s article and check out the teachers he talks about. Each one has a unique voice and perspective on ASDs. These are the experts who have a lot to say.
