Barry’s Story:

How is Barry’s new book, Uniquely Human, helping people better understand autism?

For years Barry has published professional journals in academic literature, and he realized that a lot of the information was staying within the academic community.

So he wrote Uniquely Human with many practical stories that are engaging for people that may not have the technical background in special ed.
