Comox Library recognizes Autism Awareness Month with presentation by local author

Comox Valley Record - 4/14/2021

April is World Autism Awareness Month, an annual opportunity to increase understanding and acceptance of people with autism. In conjunction with World Autism Awareness Month, the Comox Library will host a presentation from Comox Valley author Teresa Hedley on her book What's Not Allowed: A Family Journey with Autism on Thursday, April 22 at 7 p.m.

What's Not Allowed: A Family Journey with Autism tells the tale of Erik from womb to emerging adult. Written with compassion, humor and keen observation, readers are taken inside the shoes of autism and invited to link arms with the Hedley family as they nurture Erik from boy to man. Heartfelt stories highlight themes around autism support and offer an intriguing glimpse into the mind of autism.

Teresa says that while the book is a memoir, it's full of information she says is useful to any families dealing with life on the spectrum. During the presentation, Teresa will discuss lessons she has learned about what matters on the autism journey.
