Children's Book 'His Own Way' by Sergio Liden Inspired by Firsthand Experience of Having an Autistic Son
rights activist Sergio Liden was inspired by his firsthand experience of having an autistic son.
The book will be released on March 22, 2021.The book will be available on Amazon and everywhere books are sold.
“I wish I had had a book like this when our son was diagnosed. We didn’t know what to expect. This book was written from my oldest daughter’s perspective on having an autistic brother. A person’s worth shouldn’t depend on whether or not they have a disability. His Own Way promotes understanding which inevitably leads to a more loving world. If we are going to make the world a better place for autistic people and their families, we need to talk openly about the disadvantages associated with autism as well as how to understand autistic people while protecting their rights and dignity.” said Liden about his new book.
The 39-page book was beautifully illustrated by Francesco Orazzini; they have dedicated it “To those who feel invisible, remember, you are very much seen.”
