Over the summer of 2013 and into the fall, 17 stories were collected from the first-person perspectives of moms, dads, caregivers, and those on the spectrum. The memories and experiences were compiled into a book called, Facing Autism in Muncie. In addition to the stories, the book provides a directory for all autism resources in the Muncie area—including families who are willing to be contacted as an additional support network.
In partnership with Muncie Civic Theatre and the Ball State University Department of Theatre and Dance, the stories will come to life on November 2, 2013, through the Facing Autism in Muncie Monologues. Adapted from the book, Facing Autism in Muncie, this performance event will be a night of celebration and reflection. Attendees will receive a free copy of the book.
