This book is the story about two children: Mindy and Ivan. They are both happy children. They are also both clinically diagnosed with autism. Eikona means "image" in Greek. Eikona Bridge takes you on a journey to a world that you have never been to before: the inner world of people with autism. This bridge helps parents, educators and the public in general understand today's children with autism. You will learn to discover these children's talents and ways to communicate with them. You will come to see autism as a communication problem, and that once the communication problem is solved, everything else falls in place. This book will show you that raising children with autism can be a beautiful journey, with breathtaking scenery at every stretch. Make no mistake about it. This is a serious book on autism that challenges the reader emotionally and intellectually, and it will shatter the conventional wisdom on this subject. Going beyond a feel-good narration, the book serves as a practical reference manual with concrete solutions and explanations for parents and educators. Written by an autistic person as a proud parent, this book is thoroughly unconventional from its cover to its last page. It will touch your heart and challenge your head.
