To view Eileen Miller's Personal Wellness Scale, CLICK HERE. The Personal Wellness Scale was created out of necessity, when her daughter, Kim, who is autistic, could not verbally express her level of sickness or wellness even though she was able to speak. The Personal Wellness Scale is 2009 Eileen Miller, all rights reserved.

For many years Eileen Miller's daughter, Kim, was unable to verbalize her experiences and emotions, but she was able to communicate using a less conventional language: her art. The Girl who Spoke with Pictures tells the story of a young woman with autism, and how her enlightening drawings enabled her to share her view of the world.

Illustrated with drawings created by Kim between the ages of 3 and 17 years old, the book gives an insight into how Kim expressed her thoughts and feelings through pictures, revealing her capacity to learn and be understood by those around her. Reflecting on her daughter's artwork,the author explores the concept of art as a universal language that can transcend barriers and enhance the personal and educational experiences of those with autism.

This book provides a window into one autistic girl's experience of life and will be essential reading for teachers, parents, and anyone with an interest in autism.
