Bobbi Sheahan, mother of a child with autism, and psychologist Kathy DeOrnellas, Ph.D., did not write this book to lecture you on how to parent your child. Instead, they offer themselves as your scouts in the field, who have valuable information to share from the moment you realize your kid is different (My, what a quiet baby I have!), to the self-righteous moms on the playground, to holding your marriage together and the realm of routines.

They candidly tackle ASD issues such as:

Picky Eating

Bedtime Battles

Potty Training

Speech Delays


Early Intervention

Sibling Rivalry

And much more!

    With higher functioning children, the pattern of speech development is typically more like Grace’s experience—not much speech and then a torrent of verbiage that never seems to stop.
