Bookwitch: 'Dasha's Journal'
Tuesday, October 07, 2008  4:05:00 AM

by T.O. Daria

Dasha is a clever cat, and Iím glad Iíve got to read her journal on autism. She is very astute and has some good ideas about autism and especially about so-called normal people. I know that someone else could have written about autism like this, but because she is a cat Dasha manages to get away with some truths that might be a bit uncomfortable coming from a human.

There are many, excellent books on autism, and it’s a good idea to read several of them, to get a look at autism from different angles. Most of the autism books I’ve come across are fairly conventionally put together. Dasha looks at things differently, from the cat/animal point of view. It’s a good technique in many instances, and should be practised more often. Maybe Dasha isn’t as polite about humans as she could be, but as she points out, many humans are not nice to either autistic humans or to animals either. They think they have the right to say they are better at things.
