Summary, etc.:
In Underestimated: An Autism Miracle, Generation Rescue's cofounder J.B. Handley and his teenage son Jamison tell the remarkable story of Jamison's journey to find a method of communication that allowed him to show the world that he was a brilliant, wise, generous, and complex individual who had been misunderstood and underestimated by everyone in his life. Jamison's emergence at the age of seventeen from his self-described "prison of silence" took place over a profoundly emotional and dramatic twelve-month period that is retold from his father's perspective...Many scientists still consider nonspeakers with autism--a full 40 percent of those on the autism spectrum--to be "mentally retarded." Is it possible that the experts are wrong about several million people? Are all the nonspeakers like Jamison?
