Listen to This Dad's Touching Voicemail about His Son's Autism Diagnosis

June 24, 2014

(June 24, 2014) - The way the website Call Me Ishmael works is simple: "Leave a message about a book you love, and a story you've lived." The site provides a phone number and features one voicemail a day as a Youtube video transcription. The most recent voicemail is from a father in New York City whose son recently received an autism diagnosis. He talks about how his initial reaction to the diagnosis and how the book "Not Even Wrong" by Paul Collins helped his perspective evolve. Listen to his touching message above.
