Together, they chronicle Sean's young life and the effects of autism on him and his family. As a youngster, Sean was confrontational, uncontrollable, 'isolated and desperately unhappy.' Baffled about how to interact with others, he felt 'like an alien from outer space.' Then, at seventeen, Sean experienced a breakthrough that began his release from autism. Today he's a public speaker, college student, and reporter - and close to his family. You absolutely must read this book.

Author Biography - Judy Barron
Judy Barron lives in the Pocono Mountain region of Pennsylvania with her husband. She is a lyricist and writer who divides her time between writing children's songs and books, and painting floor cloths and faux finishes. Sean Barron is a very interesting and intelligent young man who has faced the challenge of autism. He and his mother wrote an insightful book on their lives together. There's a Boy in Here has won many accolades for offering the unique perspectives of two people who look at the same world but see and feel entirely different things. Mr. Barron has progressed to the point that it is difficult to even realize that he once was truly impacted by autism/Asperger's Syndrome. He is now a freelance writer, lives independently, and recently co-authored Unwritten Rules of Social Relationships with Dr. Temple Grandin. Sean is a graduate of Youngstown State University, and works as a reporter for the Youngstown Vindicator. He's pursuing a second degree in journalism.
