There have been huge advances in our ability to diagnose autism and in the development of effective interventions that can change children’s lives. In this extraordinary book, Lynn Kern Koegel, a leading clinician, researcher, and cofounder of the renowned Autism Research Center at the University of California at Santa Barbara, combines her cutting-edge expertise with the everyday perspectives of Claire LaZebnik, a writer whose experience with a son with autism provides a rare window into the disorder. Together, they draw on the highly effective “pivotal response” approach developed at the center to provide concrete ways of improving the symptoms of autism and the emotional struggles that surround it, while reminding readers never to lose sight of the humor that lurks in the disability’s quirkiness or the importance of enjoying your child. From the shock of diagnosis to the step-by-step work with verbal communication, social interaction, self-stimulation, meltdowns, fears, and more, the answers are here-in a book that is as warm and nurturing as it is authoritative.

According to a recent study, as many as 1 in 91 school age children are somewhere on the Autism Spectrum. It's reached epidemic proportions! Everyone seems to know someone who's affected by autism. It's no coincidence that so many of our kids on the spectrum also have various immune problems like allergies, asthma, and eczema to name a few. Many of them have bowel problems that cause toxins to accumulate in their bodies. When the toxins accumulate, the liver has to work harder to get rid of those toxins. Chronic ear infections and antibiotics seem to be another common problem. The use of antibiotics causes an overgrowth of yeast (candida) which causes all kinds of problems and symptoms. And it just snowballs from there. Our autistic kids are just more sensitive to the toxins in our environment - they're like environmental barometers of how truly toxic our environment has become. It is possible to overcome "Environmental" Autism. There are parents who have done it or are doing it. "Overcoming Autism: A Parent's Guide" is informative, compassionate, empathetic, and at times provides some much needed humor. It's written by a parent for parents and offers direction to parents of autistic children who are baffled by the lack of information and help mainstream medicine has to offer them to deal with autism. It provides helpful information based on hands-on experience with; early intervention, various therapeutic interventions, integrative medicine, the environmental connection, how autism affects the family, and how the author's son ultimately overcame many of his autistic disabilities. It also offers hope!

The “relationship with God” is not a cliché, but it does present its challenges. What if the struggle to connect with God has less to do with His invisibility and more to do with our “spiritual autism”- our confusion with God and subsequent retreat to religious routines? What if God is trying to connect with us much like a parent works to connect with their autistic child? Through the cover-to-cover story of the Bible, practical aids and his own experiences with his son, Micah, the author offers a pathway towards genuine “eye contact” with God.
