New Audio Edition


“Dear Friends,

Since the publication of The Boy Who Loved Windows, more than 17 years ago, I’ve had hundreds of conversations with parents of children with autism and related disabilities, occupational and physical therapists, early intervention workers, and college professors about how we can help our kids with autism stay connected.

My son Walker was six months old when he was diagnosed with some of the earliest signs of autism doctors had ever seen. Now, at 23, he’s one of the most outgoing, thoughtful, empathic and self-reflective young men I have ever met. I thought it was time to update the audiobook to talk about what I learned in the years since I wrote The Boy Who Loved Windows and to share it with a whole new generation of parents out there looking for methods that work in helping kids on the spectrum emotionally touch the world and be touched by it. I hope you’ll listen and share the great news about what’s possible for children who find interacting with the world and other to be a challenge.”
