  • Author William Stillman

    William Stillman is the author of the groundbreaking book Autism and the God Connection, the first study of the profound spiritual, mystical, and metaphysical gifts of some individuals with autism. His other books include The Autism Answer Book, The Everything Parent's Guide to Children with Asperger's Syndrome, and Demystifying the Autistic Experience. Stillman also writes columns for The Autism Perspective and Children of the New Earth magazines. As an adult with Asperger's Syndrome, a mild "cousin" of autism, Stillman endeavors to highlight the exquisite sensitivities of our most valuable, wise, and loving "teachers."

More children will be diagnosed with autism this year than with AIDS, diabetes, and cancer…combined.

In Autism and the God Connection, William Stillman presented extraordinary accounts of spiritual giftedness in autistic children and adults, persons often deemed intellectually inferior.

Now, in The Soul of Autism, Stillman shows:

  • Why the unaccountable and dramatic rise in autism–with no single known cause–is a necessary part of our spiritual evolution.
  • The secret component that makes autistic telepathy possible for us all, and how we can learn to use it.
  • How certain autistics communicate with animals and how what the animals are saying is pertinent to the rest of us.
  • How anyone can tap into the multi-sensory giftedness possessed by many autistic children and adults.

We have much to learn from our autistic friends about transcendence rising, a new humanity accessible for all. The Soul of Autism, a Nautilus Book Award winner, illuminates the way.
