What People says About Karen Simmons

“Karen wanted her son to understand his autism, so she ended up teaching the whole community a lesson.”

Woman’s World Magazine

These pictures are some of the best illustrations of what autism is.  They give the reader a really good picture of how a child with autism thinks.  They think with pictures in their head.  I use them in my presentation and lectures to demonstrate visual thinking process.”
