©1995. By Clara Claiborne Park. This illuminating memoir is one of the first personal accounts of autism spectrum disorder (ASD), and it is now regarded as a classic. Originally published in 1967, it is a mother's story of raising a daughter with ASD at a time when the medical community knew little about the disorder and its treatment. The author describes her daughter's development in great detail from infancy to age 8, and she also documents her family's experiences, including their efforts to find professional support. In an epilogue, she discusses her daughter's progress 15 years later. Filled with photographs, this is an intelligent and beautifully written work. (Softcover; 329 pages.)
