Liz Gabor, Heidi Rome, and Richard Schreiber – contributors to “Superheroes on the Spectrum”

 

Superheroes on the Spectrum is a groundbreaking book that transcends boundaries, unveiling a kaleidoscope of voices that span the spectrum of autism. The 33 contributors, hailing from the United States, the United Kingdom, and South Africa, invite you to learn about their diverse perspectives, experiences and insights as they share their personal stories.

At its core, this book champions a philosophy of awareness, acceptance, and celebration. It’s a testament to the resilience and strength of autistic individuals of all ages, from non-speaking children to adults, and the unwavering support of parents, family members and community. In a world where neurodiversity is often misunderstood, Superheroes on the Spectrum redefines the narrative.

This book is about honoring the richness of our collective experiences while fostering a deeper understanding of autism. Inside these pages, you’ll discover the power of embracing differences and celebrating the unique gifts that neurodiversity bestows upon us. It’s a beacon of hope in a world where judgment and criticism have no place.

As a Peekskill native, Dave is thrilled to be working with the Peekskill Herald showcasing featured calendar events. A 1999 graduate of PHS, he remembers reading and enjoying the original weekly print edition of the Peekskill Herald every Thursday. He especially liked the political stories, local features and sports coverage when it was written by Peekskill Runner columnist Jack Burns who always managed to weave history into the running times. An avid hiker, he enjoys exploring the local trails as well as the concrete ones in his job as a conductor for Metro North Railroad. He’s a former teacher and co-founder of the Friends of the Peekskill Dog Park, where he frequently can be found with his Koda. He’s happy to be part of the Herald’s growth as the source of local news for Peekskill and looks forward to highlighting a few of many of the events and happenings in Peekskill and the surrounding communities.
