Come to Life: Your Guide to Self-Discovery by Thomas W. Iland & Emily D. Iland. This exciting new book helps youth discover important truths about themselves and shape their futures.

Come to Life

Come to Life helps youth engage in an active process of self-discovery to shape their own futures.
Come to Life is an incredibly engaging, optimistic and forward-looking work, based on the wisdom of Tom Iland, a respected and wise autistic self-advocate, and Emily Iland, his mother and a seasoned professional in the field of autism. Infused with Tom’s personal life experiences, it provides a vast array of self-discovery activities and resources designed to increase each child or adult’s self-awareness, confidence, self-acceptance and understanding of one’s autism as an essential foundation of one’s identity. It is a cutting-edge work that is designed to help an individual explore the gifts autism may bring, as well as effective strategies to address its inherent challenges. I highly recommend this book for parents, professionals, and most of all, for autistic people. Barry M. Prizant, Ph.D., CCC-SLP
