Excellent to learn what a family with an autistic child goes through. Their ways of dealing and the devotion involved.

This book was a great read. Mrs Maurice details a few different types of therapy and the experience we family went through to "triumph" over Autism. She is a great advocate and the book was a page turner. I would recommend it to everyone!

As the mother of an autistic child, I found the story of this family and their journey through autism very interesting, inspiring, and encouraging.
