Product description

Review

"This is a great book to obtain a firsthand look at what parents and caregivers experience in their journey with autistic children. The author's style is very readable and she evokes tremendous empathy and understanding from the reader. The many struggles are interwoven with funny, lighthearted vignettes as well. Thoroughly enjoyed reading this!" C. Pearce "The wonderful thing about this book, I think, is that it shows how the patience and the everyday common sense of caretakers can make a big difference in the ability of an autistic child to live a satisfying life. I understand that all autistic children are different, and that what works for one might not work for another one. But this book shows that sophisticated educational techniques are sometimes not needed: a loving, caring person can be a big help just by listening to the child, and figuring out ways of helping." juki654 "The book is well written and easy to read. It lets us know, what people who live or work with autistic children go through. I knew it wasn't easy, but this book really made you understand the life of an autistic child & their family. A must read for anyone who knows or deals with an autistic child." Lynne "Going into this book I felt I probably had an average amount of knowledge about children with special needs, including autism, though I've never really been around special-needs children or adults much in my 50+ years. By the end of the book, I realize how clueless I actually have been, both in what these children are going through, as well as the difficult journeys of the people who love them. After reading this journal with its well-written, honest and heartfelt insight into the ups and downs of life with this little sweetheart, I realize that while I've been working on becoming a more patient and tolerant person, I should have been spending the time becoming a more empathetic and understanding one and that patience and tolerance would have been second nature. What a great read this was, as well as a wonderful learning experience, and I'm looking forward to the sequel!" Ruth
