Once I started reading this book, I could barely stop. Read it in one day. I had vaguely heard stuff about facilitation, people being staunchly pro or con, but reading this book made me understand what it is. I also recall an experience I had about 25 years ago with an autistic child. He spoke to me and I replied, afterwards being told that he doesnt speak.
In this book it mentioned how occasionally Annie could get some words out. Now I know thats what happened. this book, this story is simply amazing. I worked with cerebral palsy kids briefly, with swimming, and I had absolutely no clue about them. I wish I had read this book.
