A PRAYER FOR A NONRELIGIOUS AUTISTIC is a family history book for those who (in various ways) choose their own, a Jewish conversion story, disability advocacy, a literary supply of special interests as palate cleansers, and a behindthescenes feature on the effects of misdiagnosis, mental illness, and addiction. The repetition used throughout is both cyclical (a reminder that healing is not linear) and, as described at the start of the book, autistic literature. Accompanying Scheelk's third poetry book includes image descriptors, a trigger warning list, and a Disability Resources section to encourage selfeducation.
