Read full description of the books Beyond Rain Man:Although one child in 68 is diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder, psychologist Anne Ross is stunned when she learns her son has Asperger’s Syndrome. The diagnosis propels her more deeply into her life’s work with children on the spectrum.
Her compelling and lyrical story of raising — and launching — her son is one of anguish as well as joy, and what she learns along the way will help other families who are living this perplexing, remarkable, and humbling journey of parenthood.
"Dedicated work, teaching, and mentoring is required to enable a young adult on the autism spectrum to be successful. Anne Ross will show you how her tireless persistence paid off."
–Temple Grandin, author of The Autistic Brain: Helping Different Kinds of Minds to Succeed
"Well-written, honest, and insightful. Complementing clinical experience with her personal story, Anne Ross highlights both the common features of Asperger's and the individual differences in presentation. She pulls no punches in exploring the darker side of the syndrome and acknowledging her own parenting mistakes. Clinicians, families with members on the spectrum, and people who simply have an interest in an increasingly visible syndrome will find this book accessible, engaging and thought provoking."
–Graeme Simsion, author of New York Times bestsellers The Rosie Project and The Rosie Effect
"As both a school psychologist and parent of a child with an autism spectrum disorder, Anne Ross provides double insight into understanding and supporting someone with Asperger’s Syndrome. Her story is engaging, informative, and accurate. Parents and professionals will benefit greatly from her wisdom."
–Tony Attwood, Ph.D., author and Adjunct Professor, Griffith University, Queensland and senior consultant, Minds & Hearts Clinic, Brisbane, Queensland
"Beyond Rain Man adds a fresh and unusual dual perspective on autism—seeing one's child through both a psychologist's and a mother's eyes. An honest account of how a professional learns from her son to help other parents."
–Simon Baron-Cohen, author and professor, Cambridge University
