Product description

Product Description

Back from the Brink, is a no holds barred autobiography by Tim Chan, a young man with severe autism. With the help of his social support (I Can) network, Tim traces his journey in managing immense challenges, no speech, severe developmental delays, intense anxiety and overload as well as stigmatisation and discrimination, to achieve communication, connection with people, graduation from mainstream school to study at university, and recognition as an autism advocate and speaker.

"I admit to having trouble with the book. Once I started reading, I couldn't put it down."
Dr Mike Steer AM, Director, NSW Office on Disability, Senior Lecturer, RIDBC Renwick Centre and The University of Newcastle, NSW

"Tim is determination personified!"
Chris Varney, CEO and Founder, I Can Network

The proceeds from book sales will be donated to the Anne McDonald Communication Centre and Communication Rights Australia for giving hope, a voice and a future to people without speech.
