Publishers Description
Don't Let Autism Have the Last Word in Your Child's Life.
Perhaps one of the most devastating things you can learn as a parent is that your child has been diagnosed with autism. A multifaceted disorder, autism has long baffled parents and professionals alike. At one time, doctors gave parents virtually no hope for combating the disorder. But in recent years, new treatments and therapies have demonstrated that improvement is possible. With intensive, early intervention, some children have recovered from autism and have been integrated into school, indistinguishable from their peers.
Discover ten things you can do to begin battling your child's autism right now.
See why Applied Behavior Analysis has become parents' treatment of choice, and examine its impressive results.
Get information on cutting-edge biomedical treatments such as secretin and immunotherapy.
Learn how dietary intervention can positively impact your child's behavior.
Find out what additional therapies can offer - including sensory and auditory integration.
Explore loving ways to keep your family together when your world is torn apart.

Children with autism "do" have the possibility to improve greatly, and some even overcome the effects of autism, if appropriate therapies are begun early enough. Discover the steps you can take today to begin the fight for your child's future in "Facing Autism."

Reviews - What do customers think about Facing Autism: Giving Parents Reasons for Hope and Guidance for Help?

The best book ever about Autism  Aug 22, 2008
This is one of the best (probably the best book) that a parent w/an autistic child should read. The best thing about this book is that Lynn Hamilton presents all treatment for autistic children. No matter if this treatment worked or didn't work for her child. Yes, she mentions her religious background, but she doesn't concentrate on it... This book can be considered as a perfect guide once you know you child is into the Autism Spectrum. I remember to read in the Jenny McCarthy's book about autism that she wanted to write a book that could be a brochure or guide about what to do when people get the Autism diagnosis. Well, this book "Facing Autism" is the book. It's the guide, it's the brochure... In addition, if you have any question, you can even email to Lynn Hamilton & she will answer you back in less than 48 hours. I have done it.
Excellent First-hand Account of a Family's Struggle!  Jan 1, 2008
Autism is a mysterious disease. Lynn Hamilton is a mother, devoted to her family and to her Christian faith. She and her husband, Roger, learn their firstborn son, Ryan has autism after several tests and meetings with specialist. Lynn writes about how she blamed herself for being a bad mother but there is the explanation that you're not at fault, there is something wrong with your son, Ryan. The news of autism is both good and bad because Lynn and Roger are not bad parents. They are now determined to conquer autism in their son. While the book is useful with information about autism networks around the country, the book is also supportive, kind, and compassionate. Lynn writes about their ordeal and it serves a purpose to help other families who may not have the resources to get their autistic kids help properly. Today, autism is more than Dustin Hoffman's Oscar-winning role in Rain Man, or Chad Allen's role as the autistic son in St. Elsewhere. Autism is far more complicated and difficult to explain but a mystery as to why it exists. Maybe it always has, we are finally discovering it's existence as to why some people have to follow strict patterns, rituals, or show lack of emotion. People with autism can have fulfilling lives as anybody else. I was surprised by Lynn's constant faith in God through this book. Also, the author is very resourceful on supplying information for parents as well as contacting certain government and public agencies; providing clear definitions regarding terms; and offering possible solutions like changing diets. She writes about hos she changed her son's diet which helped improve his behavior.
great read...  Oct 7, 2007
Lots of great info on all of the questions you may ask about Autism. I was encouraged to read "Facing Autism" by another mother, and I would do the same for someone else.
Best Book On Autism I've Ever Found  Jun 10, 2007
This is the best book on autism I have ever found. I have autism, so whenever I need to explain anything to someone, I just grab this book. It's a great book to read, whether you're a parent, caregiver, educator, or psychologist. Parents can especially relate to the book because it's about a couple trying to raise their autistic son from infancy to preteen years.
