自閉症の僕が跳びはねる理由~会話のできない中学生がつづる内なる心~ review ↠ E-book, or Kindle E-pub “One of the most remarkable books I’ve ever read It’s truly moving eye opening incredibly vivid” Jon Stewart The Daily ShowNAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BYNPR • The Wall Street Journal • Bloomberg Business • BookishFINALIST FOR THE BOOKS FOR A BETTER LIFE FIRST BOOK AWARD • NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERYou’ve never read a book like The Reason I Jump Written by Naoki Higashida a very smart very self aware and very charming thirteen year old boy with autism it is a one of a kind memoir that demonstrates how an autistic mind thinks feels perceives and responds in ways few of us can imagine Parents and family members who never thought they could get inside the head of their autistic loved one at last have a way to break through to the curious subtle and complex life within   Using an alphabet grid to painstakingly construct words sentences and thoughts that he is unable to speak out lo. This is the most illuminating insight into the mind of an autistic child that I ve seen Naoki Higashida was born in 1992 and was diagnosed with autism when he was 5 One of his teachers designed an alphabet grid to help Naoki communicate his thoughts which were then printed into a book in Japan in 2007 The writer David Mitchell who has an autistic son found it and pushed to get an English translation published In the introduction Mitchell wrote that the book was a revelatory godsend Reading it felt as if for the first time our own son was talking to us about what was happening inside his head through Naoki s words The book is structured in short sections with Naoki responding to uestions about common behaviors of autistic people When asked why he repeats what others are saying Naoki explains how difficult it is for an autistic person to communicateIt s uite a complicated process First I scan my memory to find an experience closest to what s happening now When I ve found a good close match my next step is to try to recall what I said at that time If I m lucky I hit upon a usable experience and all is well If I m not lucky I get clobbered by the same sinking feeling I had originally and I m unable to answer the uestion being asked No matter how hard I try to stop it that weird voice slips out making me flustered and discouraged and so it gets harder and harder to say anything I swear conversation is such hard work To make myself understood it s like I have to speak in an unknown foreign language every minute of every dayNaoki justifies why autistic people often avoid looking people in the eye when they re talking To me making eye contact with someone I m talking to feels a bit creepy so I tend to avoid it You might well suppose that we re just looking down or at the general background But you d be wrong What we re actually looking at is the other person s voice Voices may not be visible things but we re trying to listen to the other person with all of our sense organs When we re fully focused on working out what the heck it is you re saying our sense of sight sort of zones out What s bothered me for a long time is this idea people have that so long as we re keeping eye contact while they re talking to us that alone means we re taking in every word Ha If only that was all it took my disability would have been cured a long long time agoHe also explains why it is that autistic people often find themselves alone and then everyone assumes that they d prefer being alone and don t like being around people Naoki says that isn t true but being isolated is often a conseuence of autism I can t believe that anyone born as a human being really wants to be left all on their own not really No for people with autism what we re anxious about is that we re causing trouble for the rest of you or even getting on your nerves This is why it s hard for us to stay around other people This is why we often end up being left on our ownThere are a lot uestions and answers with Naoki and he also shares a few short stories he wrote My biggest takeaways from this book are that autistic people are much empathetic than the literature shows and how hard they are working to try and control their bodies and their thoughts You can t always tell just by looking at people with autism but we never really feel that our bodies are our own They re always acting up and going outside our control Stuck inside them we re struggling so hard to make them do what we tell themIt is telling that as soon as David Mitchell started doing publicity for this book I saw him interviewed on The Daily Show and Jon Stewart raved about Naoki s insights that The Reason I Jump became an instant bestseller Autism has affected so many families around the world and many people are trying to understand it better I think this book will help light the wayI would highly recommend it to anyone who works with autistic people or who has a loved one who is on the spectrum
