    1 thought on “Loud Hands: Autistic People, Speaking”

    1. The only thing above a book that's unputdownable is the one you have to stop, pause, take in the sheer strength of what you've just read after every essay. Loud Hands is one of those. I never thought I'd say this about an anthology, but I found every single contribution valuable. Some spoke to my experience, others broadened my perspective. The contributions were heartfelt, articulate, sometimes angry, sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes beautiful. Reading it, I felt a palpable sense of being on [...]

    2. great book, mind the small print and buy on Kindle if you can. my husband's chapter is on Throwing Away the Master's Tools: Liberating Ourselves from the Pathology Paradigm. if you have ever wondered why we need to talk about Autistic people instead of "people with autism" or how to truly be an ally in this movement, this is the book for youstead of listening to neurotypical so-called experts and scared neurotypical parents, read this book and listen to Autistics teach about autism and the neuro [...]

    3. MUST READ. If you live in this world, this is a must read. If you teach, this is a must read. If you parent, this is a must read. If you interact with other people, this is a must read. Seriously. Buy. Read. Now.

    4. This book taught me so much about myself and my community and the ways I can self-advocate and advocate for others. Absolutely a must read for anyone on the autism spectrum or who knows someone on the spectrum. Changed my life.

    5. This is a great collection, I learned so much. I felt like the way racism was handled was a bit odd though - there were a few essays in which parallels were drawn between ableism and racism, without ever discussing the intersections. That looked a bit like some authors were using these comparisons as a way to demonstrate that ableism is actually a bad thing, which would be quite clear from the material alone, I think.

    6. This amazing anthology goes a long way towards answering skeptics of the Autism rights movement and exploring the truly oppressive realities Autistic people, especially Autistic youth, face from the wider society. The section of the book entitled "What They Do To Us" was for me both the most compelling and the most disturbing section of the book, highlighting as it did the evils that occur at the intersection of ableism and ageism. One of my best friends, Shain Neumeier, has an excellent piece i [...]

    7. I'm actually in this book, so I'm going to refrain from an in depth review- please read this and rec it to your friends, family, teachers, and co workers. The essays from my fellow autistics are incredibly important to help you get a good sense of what it is to live an autistic life in this world.

    8. Wow. I'd been meaning to read this for quite a while, but I didn't expect it to hit me quite so hard when I did. I loved the book, even if it's a bit hard for me to put into words why.Although it's not clear to me that Autism Network International exists anymore--their website is years out-of-date--Jim Sinclair's essay on the development of it as an autistic community and culture was very moving, and reminded me of just how lucky I've been since college to have found friends with similar autism [...]

    9. Educate YourselfA must read for every person in our world, especially public school teachers, coordinators, administrators, and leaders. Educators, read this book slowly and carefully. It is full of things that go against the grain of most things we have been taught. Amazing read from true masters in the subject of autism. Spend time reading the pages of bullet points at the ending from the contributors. Concise and priceless thoughts, tips, suggestions straight from the source.

    10. Rich incidental resourcing. Multiple contributors. Self-advocacy. "Late" dx. Ouch. Hub didn't make it past the dedication, which lists autistic people killed by their own family members. Next edition would improve by including an index of essays by contributor.

    11. Required reading for anyone who loves or works with or in any way shares space with people who have Autism. Seriously. Read it.

    12. Three people are borrowing this book after me, and I'm not at all leery of letting them read it. I honestly feel they'll be more knowledgeable/aware after reading it. There's my ringing endorsement! (My local public library, [linked here], actually purchased the copy I read after I put in a request.)I found all the authors' pieces to be extremely intense. The tones varied--angry, sardonic, determined, among others--but all read strongly and clearly. Loudly, even.There were some especially good q [...]

    14. Loud Hands: Autistic People, Speakingis a collection of essays written by the growing Autistic self-advocate community. I did not read Loud Hands, cover to cover, but dipped into it over about 6 weeks (before having to return it to the library). Like any collection of essays or short stories, the quality varies, but several of the pieces haunted me for days. The best of the pieces in this volume should be required reading for parents new to Autism-land. Thankfully, many of the entries, such as J [...]

    15. This book was beyond excellent. I am a parent to an autistic teen and sometimes have trouble seeing the world from his view, and sometimes he has trouble explaining it to me. This have me wonderful insight to the autistic community and how important the voices of autistics are. I know that I work hard to teach my son self advocacy skills, an am reminded that this is his road that I am walking with him to be a support. Thanks for this wonderful book!

    16. How is this book not in every library? (Rhetorical question.)Minus one star because I kept thinking of how Lydia and others created All the Weight of Our Dreams: On Living Racialized Autism because this book (and so much of everything else by/about autistic folks) is almost all white people.

    17. My five star rating is due to the groundbreaking importance of this book. It was written and edited by autistic people about their experiences and the urgent need to reform medical perspective and practice. A must read for anyone unfamiliar with neurodiversity theory and its applications.

    18. An important book, featuring voices from people on the autism spectrum.Very good at explaining the ways some people with autism do try to communicate, but their style of communication is not understood by the mainstream, so they get seen as not trying to communicate.

    19. Thoroughly thought provoking collection of pieces on autism written by autistic people themselves. Sometimes humorous, often shocking and heartbreaking especially when the treatment that autistic children and adults still have to endure in institutions is concerned.

    20. Excellent read for anyone wanting to learn about Autism from people on the Autistic Spectrum! This is a book that is so good that you just HAVE to put it down.

    21. Wonderful. Each story is a gem. I am so pleased to be able to read so many powerful autistic voices in one volume.

    22. I loved this book!!! It was written so well! I highly recommend reading this. :) This has definitely been one of my favorite books.

    23. A solid read that covers a wide range of topics in surprising depth. Necessary reading for those interested in Autism and its community.
