Lots of people wrongly use the adjective “autistic” to refer people who are very quite or not very talkative but the reality is far away.
Autism is a neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by impaired social interaction, verbal and non-verbal communication, and restricted and repetitive behaviour. Although there is no known cure, some people with autism can live independently after reaching adulthood.
This beautiful book, written in form of diary, tell the story of the personal fight of the author, a caregiver, a mother and a whole family trying to teach their daughter diagnosed with autism, how to survive in this life. How did they get it? With patient, affect and love. I was very amazed to now the progress that Reagan got in just one year.
I highly recommend this book to those people who have relatives with any type of deficiency and need a ray of hope. I have seen many kids with different deficiencies who have overcome to this life and have become more success than even the considered as “normal” people. In the end, persistency is what matters.
As someone who has worked with autistic kids, I appreciated the incredible patience of caregiver Melanie exhibited in this year-long account of her life with 7-year-old Reagan. It’s no cake walk. In fascinating detail, the author shows us how molding the life of an autistic child requires all of one’s energy and focus, yet there are rewards when we see the incrementally small changes in behavior. In addition to the gratification of contributing to a child having a fuller and more satisfying life.
