Rylan both thrives and struggles with Autism and Tourettes. He and his Mama Bird, Gwen, are publishing their first book, set to hit shelves in September, 2019. Rylan paired his drawings and intuitive descriptions of what it feels like to live in his brain to create this work of art. This one-of-a-kind picture book, “If I Squeeze Your Head I’m Sorry” will uplift, educate, create dialogue, entertain, and allow readers to walk in the shoes of a child who sees, feels, and understands the world from a remarkably and refreshingly unique perspective. It’ll remind us how important it is to listen to each other in an effort to truly understand and to find immense value in one another.
