Product Description

About the Author

Judy Barron lives in the Pocono Mountain region of Pennsylvania with her husband. She is a lyricist and writer who divides her time between writing children's songs and books, and painting floor cloths and faux finishes. Sean Barron is a very interesting and intelligent young man who has faced the challenge of autism. He and his mother wrote an insightful book on their lives together. There's a Boy in Here has won many accolades for offering the unique perspectives of two people who look at the same world but see and feel entirely different things. Mr. Barron has progressed to the point that it is difficult to even realize that he once was truly impacted by autism/Asperger's Syndrome. He is now a freelance writer, lives independently, and recently co-authored Unwritten Rules of Social Relationships with Dr. Temple Grandin. Sean is a graduate of Youngstown State University, and works as a reporter for the Youngstown Vindicator. He's pursuing a second degree in journalism.

This is a highly readable, interesting book by Judy Barron and her Son, Sean who is now an adult with autism.

It is set in the era of the "Refrigerator Mom" philosophy of Autism and Judy's suffering is almost overwhelming. She constantly feels guilty and the professionals are of little help to her. Sean is extremely hard work as a young man and also we have the perspective of his Sister, who is younger than he is, and how she gradually comes to terms with the person he is. Judy finds her own solutions and most of them apply now.

I love the honesty, and the miracle that Sean turned out to be. He did not understand the emotional world but as he becomes more verbal explains the pain he felt, his explanations remind me of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.

How this family made it through the Lord only knows - but they did.
Interesting because it shows the developmental lifespan and possibilities of a person born with autism and how as they mature they can make massive leaps in understanding which people just can't predict.

It is a very sad yet uplifting book.

Format: Paperback
Cannot express how wonderfully powerful this book is. It really shows the reader what it is really like living with autism - as I do myself as my 11 year old son has Asperger Syndrome and behaves in a very similar way to the way Sean did up until he was seventeen. I know all about the daily - no hourly! - battles Judy and Sean became locked into. It has given me hope and inspiration when I sometimes have felt there is very little. Sean's mother is obviously a warm, strong woman who is also a wonderful mother. Sean himself is quite simply a joy. His description of some of his behaviours has also given me an insight to why my own son behaves the way he does. Well done, Sean - I wish you and all your family luck and happiness for the future. Truly an inspirational story.
