Speaking for Ourselves

Conversations on Life, Music, and Autism

Michael B. Bakan

  • A powerful statement on behalf of neurodiversity and autistic self-advocacy
  • Gives direct voice to autistic people rather than considering them an object of study or discussion
  • Overturns many assumptions about autism spectrum conditions and the people who "have" them
  • A fresh, new approach to understanding music and all to which it leads, grounded in autistic points of view
  • Features a Companion Website where readers can enter the inner worlds of autistic musicians not just through their words, but through their musical artistry as well
