"This friendly, inviting, uplifting, and bracingly honest book is nothing less than a blueprint for a more humane future in which everyone is given a chance to live up to their full potential." Steve Silberman, NeuroTribes: The Legacy of Autism and the Future of Neurodiversity
Searching for academic and vocational programs for their post-high school autistic son, Lawson and Swearingen found a distinct lack of services. They soon realized that if they wanted an appropriate program for their son, they would have to build it themselves. In Share the Road they recount their personal experiences and the stories of their students as together they create a pioneering vocational training program that empowers autistic individuals. All proceeds from the sale of this book support the work of Autistry Studios.
"This is a must-read, never-too-soon-to-read book that supports parents as they envision how their autistic child can become his/her best self as he/she grows up." - Bryna Siegel, PhD, Executive Director, Autism Center of Northern California
