ABOUT THE BOOK: A Life to Rescue: The True Story of a Child Freed from the Bonds of Autism. The puzzling behavior of a two-year-old boy baffles his parents. Why would a child flap his hands, not respond to his name, and regress in his language skills? A specialist reveals the news-autism. Yet amid the heartache, the couple discovers a road to overcoming autism. A Life to Rescue relives the wonder of this child's deliverance providing a hope available to other young children with autism. ** The book appendix includes: therapy basics, hiring tips, scheduling, meetings, payroll, workshops, peer play, learning in a group/school, success and depression. "I found it [A Life to Rescue] very readable and a valuable presentation of ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis). How anyone could read this mother's account and not be informed, impressed, and inspired by the method and the results gained with her son is totally beyond my imagination. I learned so much, and I've been working in the field of autism from over thirty-five years." ~ Dr. Laurence A. Becker, Ph.D."What a great book! A fantastic reference for parents. A great tribute to all that ABA/Lovaas therapy can do." ~ Crystal Burns Held, ABA Consultant. Website: www.aLifetoRescue.com.
