5.0 out of 5 stars Up there with "Let Me Hear your Voice", 23 Feb 2007
This review is from: Daniel Isn't Talking (Paperback)
One of the (rare) books on autism which as a parent didn't freak me out, make me feel guilty for not doing enough, bore me to death, scare me silly, or made me wish I'd studied chemistry more at school. If you have a child with autism, get this book, grab a glass of wine or a bar of chocolate, wait until kiddo is asleep, jump in the bath, and chill with this book. Feel you have a friend to talk to who understands. Especially good for when Hubby doesn't want to talk about autism. I read somewhere that Marti said she never thought she'd write a book like this one. I am very glad she did. She describes my experience, as a parent of a child with autism, perfectly. I mention "Let me hear your voice". I wish I'd got this book first. I know Catherine Maurice is a heroine, a giant of autism. But the love for Daniel shines out of this book more for me, it gave me hope, many professionals are so quick to write off your child because "we don't want to raise your hopes", I'd rather have hope than despair and I know my lovely little boy wants that too for us all too. And Marti was brave enough to state that her writing came from her personal journey which I respect enormously.
