I am not a parent of a child with autism, but rather a spec ed teacher working with children with autism and write IEPs for early intervention. I have the unique pleasure of working in the homes of children with autism and listen to their struggles as a parent. This book was a easy read and really touched home on parental struggles and strengths! Thank you for walking me through Josh's early years as sometimes (for a non parent), we educators/therapists forget just how much work parents have to endure all for one truly special person.
Good first read!
Easy to read and very informative. Having just found our son to be autistic I decided to start learning all I could to help him before we even completely understand where on the spectrum he is. This book was encouraging and educational. Thanks for sharing your story and helping me to accept mine!
Good read. Reading this book helped me feel I wasn't alone. Our 19 month old daughter has some delays and has been with early intervention in our state for about 3 months. It's hard to know what is coming next but I feel like I will be better prepared for IEP s and such now. Thank you Kimberly!
This book is so full of useful information. I have a nephew just diagnosed on the spectrum and this was helpful to give my sister insight on what to expect when starting this process, from the perspective of the parent. Thank you!
