You’re probably wondering, what exactly is autism? Awareness of autism has certainly increased one hundred fold since the day I discovered my son was on the autism spectrum. Without all the confusion associated with the many different autism definitions, in my own words, experience and opinion,
“autism is a communication and sensory disorder that effects behavior and social skills of the individuals diagnosed.”
This explanation, after working in the field for twenty six years, having hosted 67 conferences and written many books on the subject, while also having two special needs children on the spectrum, seems to make the most sense.Shop Here Read Autism Articles Special Offers

“Little Rainman shows that autism can be seen and understood by everyone. After reading this book full of miraculous pictures, I feel greater love, compassion and understanding of a situation that somehow touches us all sooner or later.” – Mark Victor Hansen, Co-Creator, #1 New York Times best-selling Chicken Soup for the Soul series “Autism demonstrates the genius in every human soul. This book is an absolutely genius idea!”
“Thank you for allowing us to share your stories with our readers. It was one of the most touching and unforgettable I have ever worked on.”
“There are no words to express my appreciation for your creativity. I just know it is going to help many, many people. I spent two years as a fellow in child psychiatry seeing only autistic children so you can see I have great compassion for the challengers in your life…..and how out of those challenges you are helping others.”
“Our interview with Karen was intense, inspiring and educational all at the same time. For those wanting to learn what autism is all about from the mother of an autistic child, you should book Karen Simmons.”
Talking with Karen Simmons was a joy. She is a fountain of information and inspiration as she knows the special needs of our very special children. Karen Simmons of AUTISM TODAY has the answers to the questions we need.
Since the new millennium, many organizations have become involved to try and make sense of it all. Some include the Autism Society, Autism Speaks, Autism Now and so on. We even have an autism awareness month in the US and in Canada. In the US it’s in April and Canada it’s in October. We also have visibility efforts available, such as inclusion in our newsletters and on our website to support such organizations
You’ve all heard the saying “many hands make light work” and that is how the different groups address the issue of autism. AutismToday has always been and continues to be a platform to display global autism information, and autism resources in an unbiased manner. From hosting conferences, to writing books, we are proud to have connected many people in the autism world. It has been a true autism test to learn, grow and expand in this field.
What we are working on right now is updating our material so it is more current. By providing these resources to parents, educators, professionals and of course people on the autism spectrum, we’re shifting the world one diagnosis at a time. The faces are new and the information is updated in the DSM-5 manual which outlines the criteria for disorders. It has and continues to change with the goal forever shifting towards the future.
With new methods of diagnosis and treatment, it’s always a goal to stay ahead of the curve which is why we are proud to bring new resources, such as representing organizations that are creating sophisticated, yet user friendly, behavioral tracking tools and autism software designed for organizations working with children on the spectrum.
We continue to provide our best-selling autism tools such as the Autism Educaiton Online series of DVDs and our autism ”mini quiz” that have helped millions worldwide to discover autism early so children have a chance with early intervention methods. New autism sensory tools like the interactive robot cat and dog autism toys are used to help create bonds with some autistic children. Everyone knows about the fidget spinner and we will soon be providing those with each new book order to help fill the children’s sensory needs.
We’re super excited about our gold medal book “The Official Autism 101 Manual” which won the independent publishers gold medal award in the medicine category. It has been recently revised and updated along with Autism Tomorrow which is now called Autism for Tomorrow. These two titles will be available in the fall of 2017.
We are certainly glad and proud to be serving the autism community worldwide in so many beneficial and unique ways and especially thankful that you have come along with us on this journey. You will learn so much along the way and will teach us a great deal as well.
Thank you for being part of the Autism Today Community
With joy, love and peace,
