Based upon data solicited between 2006 and 2008 the CDC has reported that the prevalence of developmental disorders among US children was 1 in 6 and Autism Spectrum Disorder 1 in 88. We should expect that these special kids will eventually touch each of our lives. Over a number of years, the author of Rain Boy has shared short anecdotes highlighting his son's disabilities, challenges, savant, and more in personal conversations and e-mail with his siblings and selected close friends. These scenarios highlight some of the characteristics of autism while unveiling the raw charm, gentility, humour, and sadness that can surround those with such disabilities. These anecdotes will provide validation for family, friends, counsellors, therapists, and other providers of those with similar limitations and may be an introductory and entertaining immersion for a more general audience. Rain Boy has a refreshing focus and serves as a celebration of the gifts yet challenges of a child and young man with autism. Walk with this father as he more publicly shares his conversations and companionship with his autistic son.
