21 New Autism-Related Books Releasing in 2015

According to the CDC, "Autism is the fastest-growing developmental disability" occurring in 1 in 68 births in the United States. Meaning, chances are you or someone you know is affected in some way by this disability's increased prevalence. As a society we are hungry for knowledge and desperate for a cure. Regardless of your personal views, we all want to know more and if you are looking for the newest book releases focusing on Autism Spectrum Disorder, this list is for you. These selections span every age and give insight to multiple aspects of the autism spectrum. I've supplied the links to their Edelweiss and Goodreads pages for access to summaries, author bios, and additional links. If you are a book blogger, let me know if you feature a review of any of the books on this list and I will post your link to the corresponding release. Otherwise, keep your eye out for these books and order the already released features from your favorite bookstore or library. Also, consider pre-ordering for yourself, to give as a gift to someone you know that is looking for more information, or donate a selection to a nearby school or library.
