Dr. Donald N. Cardinal

“My little boy has autism and I find myself lost at times. It is very hard, but I try to understand the way he feels, and if he actually understands what I am saying to him. Thank you for writing what you know, feel and live with. It does help!”

“Many a writer hopes for a ‘voice’ as clear as Sarah’s. Her words speak a deep truth, and we would do well to listen … listen, as she says, with our eyes, and also with our hearts.”

Autism researcher and consultant

“Sarah’s work is part poetry, part autobiography and part how-to guide to supporting and understanding those with autism. She helps us see autism as sometimes impossible, sometimes beautiful, and always complex.”
