The Funny Side of Autism is a book about the funny things children with autism do and say. It is a compilation of short stories related to my own experiences raising two boys with autism, and stories generously shared by people from around the country who have been in some way affected by autism.
There are an abundant amount of books out there having to do with autism, whether they are informational resources, how to guides, or someone's story.
The Funny Side of Autism is the first book of its kind to focus on the positive side of an otherwise dark diagnosis.
Extreme literal thinking often makes it difficult for children with autism to grasp the concept of everyday figures of speech or to reproduce socially acceptable behaviors. However, those excessively literal interpretations can give rise to many funny moments. Those unintentionally hilarious experiences are the focus of this book.
Her goal in writing this book is twofold. She thinks it is important to show a side of autism that is hardly, if ever, portrayed; and two, to maintain public awareness by teaching people how children with autism think.

Lisa is an active participant in children s charities that benefit children with autism and their families and advocates for the rights of children with disabilities. She lives in Phoenix, Arizona with her two boys. This is her first book.Review:
It is with awe that I observe families being able to cope so wonderfully well with what has to be one of the most difficult tasks a parent might face: raising a child with autism.
When they combine that expertise and grace with a sense of humor, then that is really special! Lisa Masters is doing just that. --Dr. Raun Melmed, Melmed Center
