One of our most common frustrations as we work to heal our children is the difficulty we sometimes experience in communicating with therapists, or doctors, or even family members who just don’t understand, no matter how hard we try, that autism is a treatable medical disease.
Dr. Julie Buckley has written Healing Our Autistic Children to help us bridge these communication gaps. Short and eminently readable, this book introduces the reader to complex science using office visits and patient stories, including those of her own daughter. Documenting the actual published medical literature on which her approach is predicated at the end, this book also does what every physician should always ask- “Show me the science.”
On 1-10-10, January 10th, 2010, the autism community will speak with one voice, buying and delivering copies of this book into the hands of our teachers, our therapists, our doctors, our politicians, our family members, communicating as one body the message that autism is a treatable medical disease, the science is published to explain why, and that we need to work together to heal the now 1 in 91 children finding themselves on the autism spectrum.
