Speaking for Ourselves is a true collaboration between Michael Bakan and his autistic interlocutors, who journey together into the heart of what making and experiencing music feels like for people who are wired differently. Reading it will enhance your understanding of not just autism, but creativity itself. * Steve Silberman, author of NeuroTribes: The Legacy of Autism and the Future of Neurodiversity *
Michael Bakan's work has always been inspired - open, dynamic, warm -hearted, and keenly intelligent. This is a delightfully human read - deftly illuminating the differences in autistic thinking while simultaneously underscoring how much our deep shared experiences as human beings provide bridging webs of feeling and wonder. His humility and respect are real models of ways we can work together toward understanding one another - beyond labels...as people. * Dawn Prince-Hughes, primatologist and anthropologist, best selling author of Songs of the Gorilla Nation: My Journey through Autism *
This is ground breaking research that could lead to real improvements in the lives of people with autism. * Derryck Smith, MD, FRCPC, Department of Psychiatry, Faculty of Medicine, University of British Columbia *
