Just received a diagnosis of Autism? This is THE book to start with!
on October 22, 2007
This is THE book to get you started on your journey of knowledge through Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). It is easy to understand, gives a quick overview in the first 20 pages, then expands on all 10 areas covering one end of the spectrum to the other. Ms. Notbohm uses her own experience with her son to lead us through the maze that is ASD in her family. All the way along she provides us with the one thing we all yearn for and that is HOPE. This book is a MUST READ for any parent, grandparent or friend of someone dealing with ASD. Nowhere in this book will you find the words 'cure' or 'recover' but you will find the words 'choice' and 'success'. This book is truly a useful tool for ALL of us who have children in our lives who just happen to have autism. One of the few authors I have come across who is truly also 'reader-friendly.'
