Thank you for this book review about “The Reason I Jump.” I have a brother with autism who is also nonverbal, like the author, and I’ve always wondered about his inner world. As a sibling, my experience with autism is obviously personal, and I really appreciate how you’re interested in this subject, being in the world of education. I think it’s wonderful that David Mitchell translated this book with his wife to reach a broader, international audience, and I’m fascinated by the technology that allowed Naoki Higashida to express himself. This gives so much hope to those with autism as well as their parents, siblings, and caregivers.
