Shonda Schilling On What Autism Means to HerThe Autism Site
Shonda Schilling, wife of Red Sox All-Star pitcher Curt Schilling, never expected to call herself an author. And she certainly didn’t expect to write a book about autism. But when her son Grant was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome at age seven, her life turned upside down.
In her book The Best Kind of Different: Our Family’s Journey with Asperger’s Syndrome, Shonda shares the painful and joyous story of Grant’s diagnosis, describes how it’s impacted her family, and sheds much-needed light on this often misunderstood condition.
Check out the video to hear Shonda discuss what autism means to her, as well as the inspiring relationships she’s made with readers of her book.
