An honest story of the power of parental love to bear and transcend adversity.

I have friends with autistic children so I tend to read books relating to this subject and recommend them if I think they would be interested.

I have worked with autistic children as an in classroom teacher's assistant- one on one with the child, and a home tutor. As a teenager I read Bears Kaufman's book Son Rise, about the story of he and Suzie raising of healing of their son Raun. This book touches me in the same way, showing the incredible dedication, love, strength and courage of Jimmy's mother, Hanna. Written from the mother's perspective, it takes the reader on her journey of becoming a mother, finding out about her son's autism, and the journey and process of discovering and handling the situation.

It also has bullet pointed ideas and tips (what to look for in a doctor, etc.) that can be helpful for anyone to apply to their situation.

It is a moving, inspiring and engaging book, which left me feeling really good and hopeful. It would be a wonderful read for anyone, as it is one woman and family's story of overcoming adversity. But of course especially for anyone specifically dealing with the challenges of autism, this is a fabulous book that will both give insight, as well as just be an enjoyable and fast read going through another mother and son's journey. I highly recommend this book!

Bravo on a book well done. Parents get clues to what they are up against and how to untangle the maze. It takes multiple therapies and supports to achieve recovery.Every parent with a young child on the spectrum should read bboks on recovery for guidance, hope and inspiration. Read our story too, Coming Through the Fog. [[[...]]]

I believe that everyone should read this book so that they can truly understand the struggles that parents and children face with autism. Even though I don't have an autistic child I do know several parents who do and would highly recommend this book to them. This book is practical and inspiring. It is an excellent book to read and have in your personal library.

I have friends with autistic children so I tend to read books relating to this subject and recommend them if I think they would be interested.

I liked this book in particular because it isnt just a bunch of technical mumbo jumbo relating to autism but it actually tells the mothers story from her childhood, the birth of her child and the struggles she went through raising an autistic child. It always amazes me the stigmatisms placed on parents when they have a child who is not considered "normal".

I recommend this books to readers who have an autistic child, readers who know of someone who has an autistic child, or readers who are just plain interested in reading a story of a mother's struggle to bring her child up through the stages of autism to "normal". I dont know if I would have had the courage and diligence to go through what she did.

If you are struggling as a parent or if you know of anyone struggling with autism this is a hearwarming story of what one mother and child went through to be able to live a healthy, normal life.

Format: Paperback
This book is like having an authentic chat with a parent about her struggle to get a better quality of life her child suffering from autism. I appreciate her this is what worked for me style rather than this is the only way. Her honesty of how her struggle was an impetus for her to resolve her own difficulties of growing up was very encouraging.

I'm writing this review from the eyes of an RDI® consultant. This author found RDI® (Relationship Development Intervention) to be one of the crucial interventions for her son. I applaud this mom and her relentless search for help to save her autistic son from a life of isolation. Throughout her son's regressions, which appeared to be related to biomedical challenges, she consistently worked with him using an RDI® approach. RDI® is a developmental intervention that gives a child a second chance to master foundational concepts typically achieved in the first few years of life. Parents are guided by a consultant which empowers them to give their child or children opportunities for social, emotional and cognitive growth. The goal is to slowly transfer the responsibility from the consultant to the parent and from the parent to the child. The intervention allows the autistic child to think for him or herself instead of being dependent on others. As its founder Dr. Stephen Gutstein says, " RDI® is a marathon and not a sprint," meaning that it is a slow process and may take years to accomplish. Through this approach and The Amy Yasko Protocol (for biomedical support) the author shares the progress her son made in being able to negotiate our dynamic social and emotional world. She shares how with her guidance, he was ultimately able to develop successful relationships with family and friends. She gives examples of activities that she did with her son during his early childhood years. Because of her extreme dedication, even after months and months of struggles, she persevered and was victorious. For this mother, RDI® became a way of life and because she made the commitment to giving her son opportunities throughout each and every day, she achieved a great outcome.Read more ›
