We are proud to announce that BEYOND RAIN MAN by Anne K. Ross is a B.R.A.G.Medallion Honoree. This tells a reader that this book is well worth their time and money!
I could not put this book down! Ross is honest and vulnerable as she details her family's story and that vulnerability translates to a truly fascinating read. As a teacher who works with children with autism, it was interesting to see the home side of a diagnosis through the lens of an education professional. As the sister of a brother with special needs, I recognized parts of my own story as I sympathized with Ross's younger son. Ross is informative in her knowledge of autism without being too scientific or condescending, which means that both those who are familiar with autism and those who have only heard the word autism will easily follow Ross's journey. Ross's book is informative, entertaining, and a must-read for special education professionals, families who have been impacted by a diagnosis, or any one who is curious about the autism spectrum diagnosis.
