“This collection is a beautiful and complex expression of what it is to know autism from the inside out. These poems are more than moving, they are instructive and teach much about how to support, listen, and appreciate.”—Paula Kluth, Ph.D., author of You’re Going to Love This Kid!: Teaching students with autism in the inclusive classroom.

“Autism has many faces and ‘ARTism’ is surely one of them. Judy Endow captures the fluid world of the autistic person with ‘artism,’ so naturally compelled by a world of pattern, theme and feel. This natural alternative ‘normality’ is one of the most misunderstood ‘functionally non-verbal’ worlds of cognitively different people. Judy playfully addresses her audience through a middle world where the language of ‘artism’ is those with autism can borrow the interpretive words of the mainstream world to build bridges and entice and invite them to respectfully do likewise.”—Donna Williams, bestselling author of Nobody Nowhere and Autism and Sensing: The Unlost Instinct.

“Throughout human history the really important stuff of life has not found its place in prose, in ordinary discourse. Art and music and poetry have helped bridge the gap. Yet, people who live with significant differences have seldom been allowed to sing their song or share their art except in a limited space called ‘special’ meaning ‘other.’ Judy Endow has given us a book from her heart and from her experience that is truly extraordinary. Her beautiful poetry lets us join her in her unique life journey and wonder from whence she drew the strength and the courage to keep from letting her autism define her and her life. And with her words she offers a way to redefine autism and those who have been burdened with labels and places of otherness to see them as one with us. Read this book. It’s wonderful.”—Anne M. Donnellan, Professor, School of Leadership and Education Sciences, University of San Diego; Professor Emerita, University of Wisconsin-Madison; and author (with Martha R. Leary) of Autism: Sensory-Movement Differences and Diversity (CBR Press 2012).

“I’ve had the honor of hearing Judy speak at several autism institutes geared at educators over the past several years. One book she shared with us is Making Lemonade, her first publication. Judy read poems from this book that artistically describes what it feels like to live with autism: getting stuck in moments everyday, interpreting language literally and dealing with sensory input that is inescapable in our world. Her positive outlook to deal with the ‘lemons’ life offers is of course, ‘to make lemonade!’ This is a must-read for those who work with individuals on the spectrum.”—Carrie Heinbuch Anciaux, photographer,
