AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'This collection of poetry reflects the journey of many - the experience of living with an autism spectrum disorder is often not well understood or accepted. The reality of the hard times, the hope for the good times and the coping with the everyday are central to this collection, which is a valuable resource for families and professionals alike. - Jon Martin, CEO, Autism SA "Dimity Knight's powerful and compelling Joined at the Fingertips grew out of her life as mother of an autistic son and will strike chords particularly in the hearts of those who have faced the problems of a child who is in any way different from the norm. Yet the book's relevance and appeal are broader; this collection of poems explores in simple and moving verse the complexities of relationships between all parents and offspring. Her poems are carefully crafted, whether in passionate free verse or the intricacy of sonnets. Her own despair takes us into dark moments with her, but through it all is an unquenchable sense of love and joy." - Dr Valerie Volk,.' (Publication summary)
