Thank You

From Chicken Soup for the Soul: Raising Kids on the Spectrum

Thank You

We owe huge thanks to all of our contributors. We know that you poured your hearts and souls into the thousands of stories and poems that you shared with us. We appreciate your willingness to open up your lives to other parents of children with ASD and share your own experiences, no matter how personal.

We could only publish a small percentage of the stories that were submitted, but every single one was read and even the ones that do not appear in the book had an influence on us and on the final manuscript.

We couldn’t have created this book without the help of Bryan Stark at the Kennedy Krieger Institute. He helped to shepherd this project through for all of us. We are also indebted to D’ette Corona, the assistant publisher of Chicken Soup for the Soul, who managed this complex process from soup to nuts, working with the four coauthors and all the contributors.

We also owe a very special thanks to our creative director and book producer, Brian Taylor at Pneuma Books, for his brilliant and sensitive vision for the cover and interior of this special collection.
