It’s one thing to read a book about the possible treatments for your child’s diagnosis, whether it’s autism, sensory processing disorder or any other diagnosis. It’s another thing to listen to a mom’s journey through it all. Not understanding her child’s struggles, receiving a diagnosis, working through trials and errors — it’s real stuff. Reading the book mentioned below, I cried … a lot. I cried for the child. I cried for the mom. I cried for the family. While my child has not been diagnosed with autistic spectrum disorder (ASD), like the boy in this book, he has been diagnosed with sensory processing disorder. I felt the mom’s pain in similar struggles and unknowns I have faced with my own child.
Is Your Child Different?
Are you a mom trying to find out why your child is “different”? You will find comfort in your relation to the author of this book as you cope with your own difficulties and decisions. You may also find some ideas that might work for your child, whether it’s autism, sensory processing disorder or any other diagnosis.
Not the Mom, But Know A Child Like This?
Are you a friend of the mom? Or is it your son’s classmate? Reading this book, you will see the struggles from the mom’s perspective. You then will be able to help the mom in your life. The mom in this book will share what was most beneficial in helping, not hindering, her as a mom of a child with autism or special needs. Then you can do the same for your mom friend.
I followed this mom’s journey in her faith as she went through the journey of not knowing anything to finding out solutions, even if temporary. I watched her question her faith and her parenting, but in the end, her faith was only stronger. I admire this mom and all moms who have children with ASD or anything, diagnosed or not, that makes a child’s life challenging. I tearfully enjoyed reading about this mom’s journey from heartbreak to hope. I know you will too.
