Item description for My Andrew: Day-to-Day Living with a Child an Autism Spectrum Disorder by Wallis A. Simpson...

Discovering that your child has a permanent pervasive developmental disorder is a shock to any parent. At first, it is hard to believe that the diagnosis is true. But quickly, you begin to immerse yourself in information to learn as much as you can, as quickly as you can. When the author's son was diagnosed with ASD at the age of four, she began collecting files of paperwork from doctors and therapists, test results, IEPs, and her own journal writings. She later combined this information in chronological order and used it as a resource to explain her son to teachers, grandparents, caregivers, therapists, and other parents. The result is My Andrew, a heartfelt look into the first eight years of a family's journey to raise their son with autism. Written in a journal format, this book presents what ASD means to a family's everyday life - the ups and downs, the victories and the setbacks. This book prepares the teacher, therapist, doctor, and family member for that proverbial "emotional rollercoaster" associated with living with ASD.

Reviews - What do customers think about My Andrew: Day-to-Day Living with a Child an Autism Spectrum Disorder?

wonderful book  Sep 17, 2008
This book is wonderful. I really enjoyed reading the authors trials and tribulations with his son's Asbergers. It was refreshing to read a daily account of what parents go through and share hints that have helped make their life easier.
An up-close and personal viewpoint  Aug 5, 2007
Stay-at-home mother Wallis A. Simpson presents My Andrew: Day-to-Day Living with a Child with an Autism Spectrum Disorder, her day-by-day journal of raising two sons, Andrew and Jesse. Jesse is an ordinary child, but Andrew is a child with Autism Spectrum Disorder (specifically, a high-functioning form of the disorder known as Asperger Syndrome). The entries span from Andrew's infancy to his entrance in the second grade (and Jesse's entrance in fifth grade). Simpson occasionally provides her hindsight comments in brackets to add perspective to the verbatim original journal entries. My Andrew evolves as a heartfelt portrayal of learning to adjust to raising an ASD child, and sharing one's hard-earned wisdom with the child's teachers or other caretakers. An up-close and personal viewpoint, especially recommended as a supplementary resource for anyone responsible for or working with a child with ASD or Asperger Syndrome.
