Kirkus Reviews

“Wise,” “authentic,” and “knowledgeable” can hardly describe this beautiful book. To “listen” to parents from around the world describe their children, the conditions and attitudes toward autism in their countries, and their actions to improve lives is breathtaking. To better understand the inner world of an autistic child brings the reader to action in the outer world. Whether you have an autistic child or not, this author’s work is motivating. Readers will thank Julie Hornok for bringing forth the voice of silence.

United in Autism provided me with security in accepting my son’s autism and, at the same time, not giving up on getting better despite the challenge. One mom told her son, “You may have autism, but autism doesn’t have you.” Thank you, Julie Hornok, for providing this compilation of stories that give us hope, strength, and peace in autism.
