United in Autism: Finding Strength Inside the Spectrum

When Hornok's daughter, Lizzie, was diagonosed with autism at the age of two, the author jumped into researching and implementing a 30-hours-a-week home-therapy program. Along the way, she started the blog to share not only the therapies that helped her and others but also inspiring stories of activism, all included in this volume. Thirty accounts by parents from various backgrounds and parts of the world describe their particular experience. Autism can be a lonely journey, writes the author, who helps bridge the gap for isolated parents with this offering, which documents her process of implementing an in-home speech, occupational therapy program, applied behavioral analysis, and dietary changes.
VERDICT Readers seeking a comprehensive volume on autism should look elsewhere. Those in search of stories of solidarity will find that and more here.Julia M. Reffner, Richmond, VA
