Summary This book is a collection of stories about the real secret life of several autism mothers, detailing their stress, their joys, their tears, their laughter, and their disappointments. They describe the struggles they have faced in battling the schools, the state, the media, public opinion, and the medical community that believes autism is a psychological condition rather than a treatable medical disorder. Most importantly, this book reveals the truth behind the causes of autism and offers accounts of real recoveries from a disease that is supposed to be a lifelong disability. These heart-rending and, ultimately, inspirational accounts offer support, practical advice, and spiritual strength to families dealing with autism. They remind the readers that no matter how hopeless their struggle may seem, recovery is within reach.
