by R. Wayne Gilpin

Book Image Not Available
Overview
This book will warm your heart! A compilation of the first three Laughing and Loving with Autism books, this "Best of" book contains all of your favorite stories, plus some new ones. The concept for Laughing and Loving came when R Wayne Gilpin realized how much people enjoyed the stories about his son, Alex, and his unique view of the world. Not only did people love his stories, they usually chimed in with a few of their own. This "light" view of autism contrasted sharply with all of the technical manuals, or doom and gloom stories that were in print at the time, so Wayne decided that THIS view needed to be shared. As a publisher, he printed up 500 copies, and hoped he could sell them within a few years. He took them to the National Autism Society of America meeting in 1993, and all 500 were gone within two days. The world needed this kind of book, and it still does. A compilation of your favorite stories from Laughing and Loving with Autism, More Laughing and Loving with Autism, and Much More Laughing and loving with Autism; this book will warm your heart while it opens up to all the great qualities our folks with autism bring to us.

About the author
Wayne Gilpin founded the Future Horizons publishing company in 1996. Before that, he was publishing car repair guides and law books. But his son’s diagnosis of autism rerouted his career path. He joined the Autism Society of America and was voted president in 1987. Collecting as much information on autism as he could, Wayne was saddened by the fact that all of the resources at the time were very negative and offered little hope for his son. But his experience told a different story. His son Alex was a gentle, honest, and intelligent person, and Wayne was confident that Alex would overcome his obstacles and defy the odds. To bring a little light into the autism community, he compiled and published a book called Laughing and Loving with Autism. It contained humorous and touching stories from parents of children with autism. It was the first book to really capture the positive aspects of these kids, and it gave other parents hope.
