Born on the Wrong Planet
Living with Asperger's syndrome and Tourette syndrome, author Erika Hammerschmidt feels alienated from her classmates and the world around her. Born on the Wrong Planet, her latest work, describes her life and how her experiences often left her feeling misunderstood. Stephen M. Shore, executive director of Autism Spectrum Disorder Consulting, gives it the following review: "Erika takes us on a whirlwind ride, and in the process we witness the inner workings of a brilliant Aspie mind. From toddler to school age, to marriage and beyond, we are privileged to learn more about what it is to be human." If you would like to check out this insightful book, stop by CeDIR today.
