Reviewed by Philip Van Heusen for Readers' Favorite

Meet Able, a young boy who approaches life from a different angle. He has autism. I refuse to use “disabled” for children and adults who have disorders that limit their abilities. Because they can do much, I prefer using the term “differently-abled.” For example, my 42-year-old son has Asperger’s. This is considered to be on the autism spectrum. Amy Pflueger in This Is Me: I Am Who I’m Meant to Be! has hit the nail on the head by explaining autism. Amy is the mother of two sons who are differently abled because of autism. Children with autism are genuinely a joy to be around. I love watching my son work on figuring out social situations. When he is interested in a topic, he learns all he can and, in many ways, becomes an expert in that field.

Do you know someone who is differently abled? If so, you know what true love and acceptance mean. Unfortunately, many people misunderstand children or adults with autism. They think those with autism are anti-social or self-absorbed. This Is Me: I Am Who I’m Meant to Be! opens the door to understanding those with autism. Amy Pflueger shares the story of Able - a young boy on the autism spectrum - and his understanding of what autism is. Autism allows deep thinking and the development of knowledge on a subject of interest. My son, who has Asperger’s, proves that children with autism can grow up and be a delight. Autism does not make you disabled and useless, but it makes you differently abled and unique. While people with autism struggle, understanding them helps them become all they can be. Read this book and learn how to relate to someone different than you.
