Back in October, I started writing for BabyCenter, which is the leading Internet destination for parents. My job there is to contribute to their parenting blog, called Momformation, on the topic of behavior and development.
Naturally, I write quite a bit about autism.
This week's interview is with DJ Savarese, teenage writer with autism who is the subject of his father Ralph's book Reasonable People: A Memoir of Autism and Adoption. One of the many special things about this book is that DJ wrote the last chapter himself, and it offers a candid glimpse into what it's really like to be autistic, from the inside out.
I'll be continuing this series, and would love to hear your suggestions for others I should approach to interview. I have a few more in the pipeline, and more in mind.
