The author of Lucy's Story: Autism and Other Adventures takes a closer look at what language means to her and the way she views the world. A great insight for everyone.
N.B. This book is still under construction and sections are added or edited every couple of weeks. Please re-visit.
Although she grew up without speech and problems understanding other people, the author has given us six stories which show how speech patterns enrich narrative. Subjects range from mythical Greece to Australian life in the 1980s and include fictionalised portraits of Lucy herself as a person with autism. Read and enjoy.
