Spirituality and the Autism Spectrum
Of Falling Sparrows
Defining spirituality as 'the spirit with which we confront concrete reality', this is the first book to focus on the spirituality of people with autism spectrum disorders. Drawing on verbal and non-verbal narratives, Abe Isanon explores the individual's struggle to come to terms with his or her humanity, as well as the spirituality of those who can neither reflect upon, nor express, their own life experiences, and how this affects both them and their carers.
This thought-provoking account will inspire all those who live and work with autism to strive for a better understanding of the spiritual nature of autism.
