Using artwork created by individuals diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), Drawing Autism celebrates their artistry and self-expression while also serving as an accessible point of entry into understanding how ASD manifests in individuals. Behavior analyst and educator Mullin has assembled a staggering array of work from established artists like Gregory Blackstock and Jessica Park, to the unknown but no less talented. Through their art, the contributors exhibit unique perspectives on how they see the world and their places in it. Their creations, coupled with artist interviews, comprise a fascinating and compelling book that serves to educate and inspire anyone who knows someone diagnosed with ASD.

What struck me most about this book was this it broke open my misconception about people with Autism having diminished feelings.

Feelings, originality and a lovely spontaneous flow are evident in the work. My personal favorite is the drawing titled my worst fear - it felt both personal and universal.
