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

Eileen Miller is a one-of-a-kind woman: wife, mother, teacher, author, friend, and advocate who gives all she has to intercede for her special needs daughter…. Her illustrator daughter, Kim Miller, is living proof of how one autistic child was able to overcome excruciatingly difficult circumstances to make herself understood through her art. I was amazed at how well Eileen was able to interpret her daughter’s pictures and explain Kim’s thoughts, ideas and feelings to her teachers and others who needed to “get into Kim’s head”, to understand how and what she was thinking and experiencing….I would recommend this to anyone. Inspirational, moving, thought-provoking and bold statement of determination and God’s faithfulness.
