Literature

Sam is a contributing author to chapter 8 of a new book to be published by Jessica Kingsley Publishers about Spectrum Women. Her chapter is on parenting as an autistic mother. Sam’s book Everyday Aspergers will be released worldwide, as a second edition, by an educational publishing house in the UK. Sam continues to write educational articles and participate in interviews.

Spectrum Suite is in the process of bringing on an art intern to develop images for our Source Autism video series. The artist’s works will be promoted and the internship could lead to a paid contract position.
