Today I am happy to promote a new book by Kerry Magro, author and autism advocate extraordinaire.  Kerry is an adult with high-functioning autism who has written two books to date about his experiences, and is also an award-winning autism advocate and public speaker.  I’ve had the good fortune to get to know Kerry a bit through email exchanges, and I can honestly say he is as wonderful in “person” as he is on the written page.  I can’t wait to read my copy, and recommend this book unequivocally.  I’ve included below both a “book blurb” and an “author blurb” for your perusal.  Thanks for reading, and best of luck to you Kerry!

“We are happy to share with you all that my next book ‘Autism and Falling in Love’ will be available on Amazon on Monday, December 15th! Would love for you to share and spread the word about the book this holiday season! 🙂 Thanks everyone!” Best, Kerry

Book Description: “Autism and Falling in Love” is the story of Kerry Magro, a once non-verbal autistic child who has become a successful and motivational speaker. Kerry in his last book “Defining Autism From The Heart” wrote about that autism couldn’t define him but only he could define autism. In this book, Kerry shares his experiences trying to find love on the autism spectrum and how he is now is trying define being a better partner for the people he cares for.

About The Author: Award Winning, and Breakthrough Autism Self-Advocate Kerry Magro knew early on that he wanted to make a difference in the lives of others. Kerry was diagnosed with Pervasive Developmental Disorder-Not Otherwise Specified (PDD-NOS) at age 4. Growing up, he dealt with many difficulties in regards to sensory integration, motor problems, overall social interaction and communication delays. After being re-diagnosed at 5, Kerry’s future was very uncertain.

Today however, after countless hours of therapy and the support of a loving family, Kerry has conquered many of his challenges. Now 26 years old, he has completed his Masters in Strategic Communications and Leadership at Seton Hall University. Along with this Kerry is also a columnist for Autism After 16, a life coach, and motivational speaker.

Kerry has also become a tireless advocate for students with disabilities around the state and nationally. He has appeared on Emmy-winner Steve Adubato’s Caucus Education Show, “One-on-One with Steve Adubato,”, has been published in the San Francisco Chronicle and served as an advisor on the movie Joyful Noise starring Queen Latifah and Dolly Parton. Kerry who serves as a youth delegate for The United Nations, two years ago met with Senator Robert Menendez to discuss the reauthorization of The Combating Autism Act.
