Synopsis:

Defining spirituality as "the spirit with which we confront concrete reality", this is the first book to focus on the spirituality of people with autism spectrum disorders. Drawing on verbal and non-verbal narratives, the author explores the individual's struggle to come to terms with his or her humanity, as well as the spirituality of those who can neither reflect upon, nor express, their own life experiences, and how this affects both them and their carers. The author has been involved in specialist teaching of children and adults with autism spectrum disorders for the last 12 years. He works as a residential care manager with autistic adults.
