"This book is a fun and enlightening experience for all readers! It is a wonderful and clear representation of how the world of a child with Autism can be different but also understandable. What an amazing perspective!"
Staci Kapla
Special Education Teacher specializing in Autism Spectrum Disorders

"What a refreshing way to look at Autism. As an educator/counselor, it truly touches the heart and allows the reader to explore life with the main character. Thank you for sharing; I absolutely loved it!"
Janeen Scaringelli
High School Counselor

"I like how the imaginings are followed by the images of what people in our world see. I do know the visions in the heads of children with autism are remarkable indeed. I had not ever envisioned those for myself as you did in the book. I think this is a wonderful book."
Phyllis Stout
Instructional Support Coordinator

"In My Mind, the World through the Eyes of Autism is a well-written book which opens the readers mind to the world of autism. Autism is a mystical condition; this book gave me insight into what we merely see on the surface when dealing with people diagnosed with autism. Through this picture book, I was able to connect with what lies beneath the observable characteristics. I really enjoyed the book and have encouraged others to read it as well."
Renee Blackford
District Special Ed Facilitator

Something About Me and My Book:
Author of In My Mind: The World through the Eyes of Autism", an endearing tale about how a child with autism sees the world... and how the world sees him.

Adonya Wong attended Suffield University in Twin Falls, Idaho where she received a Bachelor’s of Arts in Business Administration.

She began writing short stories and poems at a young age and finds she writes her best through the inspiration of her loved ones. In My Mind: The World through the Eyes of Autism (Tate Publishing, 2009) is her first book. It was pre-released in October and was released worldwide on January 6, 2009. It was inspired by her son, Nicholas, who has autism.

In My Mind is a full-color book depicting the world as seen through the eyes of a young boy with autism—a world no one else can see. From exciting adventures to silly games and conversations with friends, look closely and see how a child with autism sees the world… and, in turn, how the world often sees a child with autism.

Adonya’s primary motivation for writing such a book stemmed from the most basic recognition that there was a scarcity of literature directed to and written for children with autism and their families.

Though the book is meant for children, it also poignantly reaches adults, inspiring them to examine their own preconceptions about people with developmental and other disabilities. The book teaches both children and adults to see the world through the eyes of others who may be different than they are, eliciting compassion, tolerance and patience from the reader.

When she is not writing, she homeschools her son and heads the Tulsa-based nonprofit which she founded, M.O.C.H.A. – Mothers of Color for Holistic Alternatives.

Adonya lives in northeastern Oklahoma with her family where she enjoys spending time with her family and friends, traveling, watching classic movies, and curling up with a good book.
A portion of the author’s proceeds benefit Autism Center of Tulsa.

Traveling Down the Road to Autism Recovery

I know it isn't my fault. I didn't cause my son's autism, but that doesn't stop me from, occasionally, feeling a bit guilty.

In order to heal myself on this road to recovery and since I'm more prone to be online than not, I decided to start journaling. I've bypassed the paper journal and pen, and opted for the instant gratifying online version better known as blogging.

We are all united through autism. Sharing our… Continue
