Would you listen to Strange Son again? Why?
No. The author had a 'know it all' attitude, despite constantly admitting she doesn't understand how the other Mother in the book is able to teach non-verbal autistic kids to write. The whole book can be summarized like this: I know how to use this method better than the poor woman from outside the USA does. I don't know what the method is, but I think she should change it. She thinks these kids can learn even more but I don't think so. I have formed a charity so I have tons of money to use, as long as we do it my way. I told her my way is better over and over and over but she just left. Now I have to try to figure out how she does it so I can be in control. Me. Me. Meeeeeee.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Strange Son?
The thousand times the author mentions 'her' ideas came from another woman, then she proceeds to bash the other woman.
Which scene was your favorite?
When the other woman gets fed up and leaves.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I REALLY wish there was a book by Tito and/or his Mom.
Any additional comments?
Most other books on Autism are better.
