This is THE one book to get you started on your journey of knowledge through Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
This book is written in lay mans terms, -easy to understand, and gives a quick overview in the first 20 pages, then becomes more informative and touches on many areas of the neurological disease, covering one end of the spectrum to the other. Ellen Notbohm uses her own experiences with her son to bring us through the way that ASD has touched her family. Along the way she provides us with the one thing we all yearn for while being faced with a situation like this, .....HOPE.
This book is a MUST READ for any parent, grandparent or friend of someone dealing with ASD. While nowhere in this book will you find the words 'cure' or 'recover', you will find the words 'choice' and 'success'. One of the few authors who has written on the subject that is truly trying to keep her work "reader-friendly".
