Aiden's Brain is the success story of a child with high functioning autism from the time of diagnosis until college entry. It is told in the voice of his mother, his developmental pediatrician, and Aiden himself. While providing an enjoyable read it provides parents and professionals with: important guidelines of how to navigate the complex special education system; the nature of autism from a symptomatic, neurologic, and treatment point of view; an in depth description of a parent's emotional and administrative struggles to obtain appropriate educational services for their children; the legal rights of the child and family; the strategies that are necessary for obtaining optimal services. In the course of Aiden's journey he discovers that his mother's cell phone enhances his ability to "think" and eliminate some of the undesirable characteristics of his problem. His classmate's father becomes concerned about the potential risks of cell phone use. With his engineering colleagues he develops an alternate instrument using transcrainial magnetic stimulation, which works as well as the cell phone radiation.
