"Everyone who seeks a more compassionate and wise life will benefit from this wonderful, insightful, and beautiful book." — Gary Zukav, author of The Seat of the Soul

One in 68 US children have an autism spectrum disorder, and with countless parenting books helping families care for children with special needs, Autism and the God Connection is the crucial, spiritual look at understanding a child with autism. Helping parents realize their child's unique spirit and reaffirm that every one of us is a blessing, this is an inspirational resource to discovering the intellect, beauty, and complexities of children with autism.

Through countless interviews, William Stillman documents extraordinary examples of spiritual giftedness, and boldly challenges our traditionally held beliefs about people with disabilities. Readers will discover hope, comfort, inspiration, and love through these affirming anecdotes of ordinary families.

William Stillman is the author of Demystifying the Autistic Experience: A Humanistic Introduction for Parents, Caregivers, and Educators, which has been highly praised by the autism self-advocacy community. His other titles include The Everything Parent's Guide to Children with Asperger's Syndrome: Help, Hope, and Guidance and The Everything Parent's Guide to Children with Bipolar Disorder: Professional, Reassuring Advice to Help You Understand and Cope. Stillman also writes a column, "Through the Looking Glass," for the national quarterly magazine The Autism Perspective and is on the publication's advisory board.
As an adult with Asperger's Syndrome, a mild "cousin" of autism, Stillman's message of reverence and respect has touched thousands through his acclaimed autism workshops and private consultations. His national television appearances include CNN Medical News and the Maury Povich Show.

He serves on Pennsylvania's Autism Task Force and is on several autism and Asperger's advisory boards including the Youth Advocate Programs' National Autism Advisory Committee. Stillman has collaborated with Temple University to develop a relationship-based curriculum for Youth Advocate Programs which will set the national standard by which mental health workers will be trained to supportchildren and adolescents with autism. He is also the coordinator for a Pennsylvania-based meeting group of individuals who use Augmentative and Alternative Communication.
