Looking Ahead to the Future of Autism Study and Care

Autism and Tomorrow is a comprehensive resource that addresses many parents' questions pertaining to their child with autism, such as financial planning, long-term care, employment options, and employer relationships, community resources, education, bullying, puberty, doctor visits, sex, nutrition, fitness, family relationships, and more.

Karen L. Simmons, the founder and CEO of Autism Today, and Bill Davis, author of Breaking Autism's Barriers, offer sound, expert advice derived from their own experiences. Both Simmons and Davis are parents of children with autism; consequently, Autism and Tomorrow is as much an autobiography as it is a reference book.

Both authors draw inspiration directly from their own lives and apply their expertise to the general study of the subject. By doing so, Simmons and Davis hope to help other parents, caretakers, relatives, and friends improve both their knowledge of autism, and as a result, the lives of those affected by it.

Karen L. Simmons is the celebrated founder and CEO of Autism Today, an internationally acclaimed resource for autism and all special needs. She is the mother of six children, including one with autism and another with ADHD. Simmons is also the author of four other books. Her mission is to celebrate every child's gifts and talents, and by doing so, she has become a highly recognized authority on autism and special needs.

Bill Davis is an author, autism expert, and advocate for anyone struggling with autism. He authored multiple books, including Breaking Autism's Barriers: A Father's Story and Dangerous Encounters-Avoiding Perilous Situations with Autism. He is the former president of the Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, chapter of the Autism Society of America and the recipient of Temple University's End the Victim's Silence Advocacy Award.
