    Note I have autism I have to admit, I was on the verge of crying at some partsbecause this book is everything I ve wanted to tell the world but didn t know howit made me understand myself a bit better, because like the author, I am not always sure why I do the things I doIt is one of those books I want as many as people as possible to read, to try and understand people with autism a bit better, and get rid of misconceptions.

    This is a great book to be written by someone of any age and the fact that it is written by a 13 year old is amazing The book reads like a FAQ of questions that anybody especially a parent of children with Autism or Asperger Syndrome have asked shouted at their children about why they keep doing certain things I bought this book after a particularly heated argument with my 8 year old this book did help at the very least it told me that many of the things I questions e.g Why do you keep doing the same thing after I have told you a million times not to Yes all kids do this but is Autistic and AS children seem to take it to another level In between questions we are threated to a couple of short stories written by Naoki these are great and remember the boy was only 13 when he wrote this book It shows that creative writing is definitely Naoki s outlet and wrenches at my heart that such a creative and intelligent boy has so much problem communicating verbally or in person.Two thing to remember about this book Everyone with Autism or AS is different, but they do share many traits, so as insightful as Naoki s views are for himself might now apply to all children people However it does offer a first hand perspective which is otherwise unheard of the other is the message theme that Naoki is trying to get across DON T GIVE UP ON US Yes they might keep doing the same thing when they are told not to, but you still have to keep telling them not to till maybe on the ten million and one time it might get through to the child then they know it for life As Naoki points out they might not look like it but they are learning slowly but surely they are This book is a great insight into a great and creative mind that has been trapped inside a body with fewer outlets then are available to the rest of us, however with patience and understand many other children could be allowed to find their own outlet and unleash their ideas on the world.

    This is the most illuminating insight into the mind of an autistic child that I ve seen Naoki Higashida was born in 1992 and was diagnosed with autism when he was 5 One of his teachers designed an alphabet grid to help Naoki communicate his thoughts, which were then printed into a book in Japan in 2007 The writer David Mitchell, who has an autistic son, found it and pushed to get an English translation published In the introduction, Mitchell wrote that the book was a revelatory godsend Reading it felt as if, for the first time, our own son was talking to us about what was happening inside his head, through Naoki s words The book is structured in short sections, with Naoki responding to questions about common behaviors of autistic people When asked why he repeats what others are saying, Naoki explains how difficult it is for an autistic person to communicate It s quite a complicated process First, I scan my memory to find an experience closest to what s happening now When I ve found a good close match, my next step is to try to recall what I said at that time If I m lucky, I hit upon a usable experience and all is well If I m not lucky, I get clobbered by the same sinking feeling I had originally, and I m unable to answer the question being asked No matter how hard I try to stop it, that weird voice slips out, making me flustered and discouraged, and so it gets harder and harder to say anything I swear conversation is such hard work To make myself understood, it s like I have to speak in an unknown foreign language, every minute of every day Naoki justifies why autistic people often avoid looking people in the eye when they re talking To me, making eye contact with someone I m talking to feels a bit creepy, so I tend to avoid it You might well suppose that we re just looking down, or at the general background But you d be wrong What we re actually looking at is the other person s voice Voices may not be visible things, but we re trying to listen to the other person with all of our sense organs When we re fully focused on working out what the heck it is you re saying, our sense of sight sort of zones out What s bothered me for a long time is this idea people have that so long as we re keeping eye contact while they re talking to us, that alone means we re taking in every word Ha If only that was all it took, my disability would have been cured a long, long time ago He also explains why it is that autistic people often find themselves alone, and then everyone assumes that they d prefer being alone and don t like being around people Naoki says that isn t true, but being isolated is often a consequence of autism I can t believe that anyone born as a human being really wants to be left all on their own, not really No, for people with autism, what we re anxious about is that we re causing trouble for the rest of you, or even getting on your nerves This is why it s hard for us to stay around other people This is why we often end up being left on our own There are a lot questions and answers with Naoki, and he also shares a few short stories he wrote My biggest takeaways from this book are that autistic people are much empathetic than the literature shows, and how hard they are working to try and control their bodies and their thoughts You can t always tell just by looking at people with autism, but we never really feel that our bodies are our own They re always acting up and going outside our control Stuck inside them, we re struggling so hard to make them do what we tell them It is telling that as soon as David Mitchell started doing publicity for this book I saw him interviewed on The Daily Show and Jon Stewart raved about Naoki s insights that The Reason I Jump became an instant bestseller Autism has affected so many families around the world, and many people are trying to understand it better I think this book will help light the way.I would highly recommend it to anyone who works with autistic people or who has a loved one who is on the spectrum.

    I would be skeptical that this book was written by any 13 year old, with or without autism I m putting it on my shelf next to Three Cups of Tea and A Million Little Pieces This is the longer review I wrote on .com.http www. review R1XCQAT7This is a good reviewhttp www.spiked online.com newsite And here are some quotes It is undoubtedly reassuring for parents of children with autism to discover in Higashida s account a boy who not only sympathises with their difficulties, but also shares many of the familiar views of middle aged, middle class readers in Western society It is when Higashida turns to the wider significance of autism that the moralising sentimentality of this book becomes fully apparent Higashida observes that I think that people with autism are born outside the regime of civilisation The message from the voice behind the alphabet board is that as a result of all the killings in the world and selfish planet wrecking that humanity has committed, a deep sense of crisis exists Higashida claims that people with autism are like travellers from the distant, distant past who have come to help the people of the world remember what truly matters for the Earth I believe that my son enjoys swimming pools because he likes water, not because, in the fanciful speculations of Higashida, he is yearning for a distant, distant watery past and that he wants to return to a primeval era in which aquatic lifeforms came into being and evolved I fear that the translation and endorsement of this book reinforces myths than it challenges Like Mitchell, like other parents, I have spent much time pondering what is going on in the mind of my autistic son But I have come around to agreeing with the pioneering Austrian paediatrician Hans Asperger that the autist is only himself there is nobody trapped inside, no time traveller offering redemption to humanity.

    I find it hard to believe most of this book.First, as a speech therapist, I am puzzled as to why Naoki can read aloud but have such severe difficulties speaking to people despite having such well developed language and great insight into his difficulties He seems to have it all figured out and yet, being just one step away from making changes to his communication style, he settled into using an alphabet board not the most efficient way of communication for someone who has obviously a lot to say.Secondly, Naoki appears to employ the theory of mind too well for a 13 year old who is severely autistic as most reviews have made him out to be He has too keen an understanding of how normal people think differently from people with autism , so far as to make statements such as one of the biggest misunderstandings you have about us Then, there is the us Even as David Mitchell starts the book by letting the readers know, rightly, that every autistic person exhibits his or her own variation of the condition , there is SUCH overgeneralisation throughout the book about people with autism Beyond that, every answer is so greatly romanticised, with abstract ideas attached to sensory behaviour Enjoy being in water We just want to go back To the distant, distant past To a primeval era, in fact, before human beings even existed and social communication difficulties Lack of eye contact What we are actually looking at is the other person s voice These answers sound much like what we, as clinicians and parents, hope to hear from the autistic children we take care of At the same time, these answers seem to trivialise the very real and disabling problems autistic children have.I found myself getting and annoyed as I went through the book It seems to have been written with the intention to influence people a certain way the author translators have decided It is certainly not a good representation of most autistic children despite its abundant use of collective terms And there is truly a lot of bullshit whether that stemmed from Naoki himself or from the multiple rounds of transcription and translation.

    Idiot savant author or has Dad had a hand in this What to say about this book It feels like half of it is the genuine thoughts and explanations for autism by an unusually intelligent child who suffers from severe autism view spoiler I am a bit fed up with the memoirs of people who live quite independently in the world and write their stories of autism when it is quite obvious that they have Asperger s, a much milder form Fed up even if I enjoy their books hide spoiler

    I d read some of the pro and anti reviews of this book by an autistic 13 year old Japanese boy before I sat down to read it, so I had some context of the surrounding controversy before I jumped in so to speak Basically, some people have criticized novelist David Mitchell for possibly embellishing some of the author s writing he has said he provided the stylistic icing on the cake of the translation , and others have noted that author Higashida claims to speak for all autistic people but is clearly not representative of them I think the latter criticism has merit It did stick out to me that Higashida, clearly gifted in perception and sensitivity, constantly uses we and our, claiming that all autistic people feel the way he does This seems much too generalizing Not all neurotypical people are gifted novelists like David Mitchell by the same token, not all autistic people are as eloquent as Higashida, and many may not have access to the kind of perception he shows here That said, there are some intriguing nuggets I was perhaps most surprised by the author s sense of shame at the way his odd behavior impacts his loved ones Even neurotypical 13 year old boys aren t overloaded with empathy, and it surely turns our preconceptions on their heads to learn that an autistic child is so obviously empathic I think this book which is different from memoirs by parents of autistic children or adult Aspies will help a lot of parents empathize with their autistic children, and that can only be good.

    3.5 starsThis book was intriguing I m taking it with a grain of salt, though, because I ve been monitoring reviews about it First I ll talk about my thoughts, though, then address concerns I thought this book was wonderful The writing was lovely with a lot of insightful analogies and heartwarming metaphors I thought the question and answer format with fictional works inserted in between was very to the point and interesting Overall, I learned a lot from this, and it made me consider a perspective I knew very little about But that s also the troubling thing a lot of readers who have autism or mothers of autistic children are suspicious that this book was embellished during its conception and its translation The authenticity of it is questioned, which is something you really have to know going into this book Many of the positive reviews are from mothers or siblings or relatives of people with autism saying, I finally know what s it s like for them but this could be misinformation Just something to consider if you want to pick this up If you are a person with autism who has read this book or are interested in reading it, I d love to know how accurate or inaccurate it is

    My eldest son has Asperger s syndrome and, while not locked into wordlessness in the same way the author was when he was little, he shares some of the behaviours described in this book, most notably the one on the cover he jumps He also intersperses that with bouncing up and down on a large gym ball, and running up and down corridors And, you know what, I d never asked him why he did these things He just did them Naoki Higashida, though, gives reasons for why he jumps, and flaps his hand in front of his face, and many other things, and while my son probably wouldn t give exactly the same answers I m going to ask him though , the fact that there are answers, intriguing, beguiling, authentic answers, is akin to revelatory Repeated actions, day in, day out, week after week, year after year, with the accompanying soundtrack of hisses and squeaks, can become to me at least teeth gratingly irritating What Naoki makes clear, and what I should have known but had lost sight of, is that it is so much harder for my son Patience, prudence, fortitude Old fashioned words and old fashioned virtues, but this book makes it clear that these are the key attributes needed by those caring for children with ASC autism spectrum conditions Naoki s voice, individual and inquiring, comes through as a far genuine reflection of ASC children than books like The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time it should be Indeed the intense self reflection displayed in this book brought to mind some comments of my own son, when he remarked, in intense frustration, That s another theory down the drain It turned out that, like an experimental scientist, he formed hypotheses about people s behaviour and emotions, and then tested them out against observation, and he did this again and again and again The strain of such constant testing needs hardly be stated In short, as a short, impressionistic account of what the ASC mind is like in childhood, this book is the best I have read If you have an ASC child, or know one, you should read it Your child s answers will not be the same, his questions might well be different, but, ah, to know there are answers

    My son Sammy is 17 He has autism, the severe variety He ll never be completely independent He s very damaged He s happy, much of the time, he has a sweet disposition, but we mostly don t know what he is thinking and feeling He makes noise, but he doesn t speak He communicates through his IPad s touch screen just okay, and through pointing He talked at age level expectations until about age 3 and then over the next few years gradually lost all his ability to communicate audibly through words I was interested in this book because it purported to share the views of a Japanese boy without or with little speech, who was now able to communicate what he was feeling and thinking I was skeptical because I have lived through other such assisted communication systems such as the one Naoki has reportedly benefitted from, all discredited, as we discover well meaning people, parents and teachers and other caregivers all helping, ala Ouija board, maybe, to speak with or for the child I want to believe each and every story, because I want to know what Sammy is feeling and thinking So am I just a cynical bastard, when I say I doubt Naoki is having this level of insight and creating all these sentences all by himself Naoki, or whoever is writing, generalizes like crazy about we kids with autism, and how we are feeling is it possible he really thinks his experience is largely universal I know they are not Kids with autism are quite variable tough to generalize about it from kid to kid Impossible, maybe So a kid with autism ought to know this, but he does not, spinning out book after book The set up is q and a, where he answers FAQ for all kids with autism It made me anxious, and sad, not relieved and moved Somebody convince me I am wrong but I am not believing I will read other reviews, but even the intro writers and translators are not convincing to me, and they know the territory Unh
