Austism Uncensored is the true story of the successful inclusion of an "unrecovered" child with autism in his community. Rather than another "breakthrough" story, it provides an unflinching, real-time portal into the mind of a parent who adopted extraordinary methods to forcibly include her autistic son in his community regardless of public ridicule or scorn. The book redefines notions of shame, conformity and success in order to carve out a meaningful life for persons with autism, no matter their limitations.
