Some auties applaud it- some aspies abhor it. Others remain wary, fearing they may be left behind or lose services.Despite the controversy, few would refute that individuals diagnosed on the autism spectrum all share commonalities.Six short stories attempt to portray the realities of autism, past and present, the idiosyncratic behaviors apparent with individuals on the higher and lower end of the autism spectrum, and show how these behaviors dont just cause a ripple but rather a tsunami, especially if not understood properly.
