These vignettes offer the reader insights into autism and autism spectrum disorders through specific true life events. This book is of value to anyone who wants to learn about autism.

�There is nothing normal about my life,� Jennifer Brown, mother of Richard, an individual with autism.

Not your typical book on autism, Snapshots of Richard captures the essence of observing a child with autism grow into adulthood. Author and mother of Richard, Jennifer Brown offers sketches of life with Richard from the time he is first diagnosed to his transition to semi-independence. Readers will come away with new insight and understanding of life with a person who has autism.

This book draws from the author�s experiences as a parent, as well as her years of practice as a speech-language pathologist. It includes a number of short essays that offer insight into her son and people like him who have been severely affected by their autism. The book is not meant to be a memoir or tell his life story nor is it meant to be a how to book. Rather, it is an attempt to capture moments that illustrate her son�s life. The book is written with an eye to seeing the humor in many situations, but it explores the challenges of autism as well. It also provides basic information for those are not necessarily looking to gain clinical knowledge but who still want to know more about autism.
