    #5Uniquely Human: A Different Way of Seeing Autism

    Uniquely Human: A Different Way of Seeing Autism

    Called "a groundbreaking book on autism, by one of the world’s leading experts, who portrays autism as a unique way of being human" by The Chicago Tribune, Uniquely Human: A Different Way of Seeing Autism by Barry M. Prizant shows that the most successful approaches to autism don’t aim at fixing a person by eliminating symptoms, but rather seeking to understand the individual’s experience and what underlies the behavior.

    "Everyone is different in their own way, no one has the same fingerprint, that is how vast the differences in the human race is. A fingerprint is a external difference, however, the internal differences and chemical makeup of each person are different in a multitude of ways. Subtle difference in the way people communicate, respond to stimuli, or view the world can simply be viewed as ones perception. A chemical imbalance may just be the way that person is. In the book Uniquely Human: A Different Way of Seeing Autism, allows those who live with and know individuals who suffer from autism, a understanding of the many different ways autistic individuals are unique. This book can be used as a reference or just a comforting support system in book form. Autism is a hard disease to understand in my opinion, but the individuals I have met with autism simply have their own way of experiencing the world."

    "I bought one of these lamps for relaxation and meditation to soothe me during times of mental health distress. This lamp is perfect to put on right before bed, and projects a beautiful blue ocean-like pattern on the ceiling/walls. It really relaxes me to use this either alone or with some music, and I love watching the pattern lull me to sleep. The fact that it has a timer makes it perfect for this use, so it will shut itself off if you fall asleep while you are trying to relax."
