Win a Signed Copy of Dr. Bob Sears's The Autism Book

The Autism Book Leave a comment to enter to win a copy of Dr. Bob Sears's, The Autism Book: What Every Parent Needs to Know About Early Detection, Treatment, Recovery, and Prevention from Little Brown. Don't forget to leave a review at Amazon after you read the book.


From Amazon: With clarity and compassion, Dr. Robert Sears guides the reader through the maze of autism, explaining what precautions parents can take to decrease their baby's risk, how to detect autism at the earliest possible age, and how to proceed once a diagnosis has been made. The book provides parents with a simple and clear understanding of the biomedical treatment approach that Dr. Sears has used successfully with many of his young patients. It lays out a plan for developmental, behavioral, and learning therapies; shows parents how to begin treatments without a doctor's help; presents information on vaccines and their safe use; and includes an extensive resources section. THE AUTISM BOOK provides all the information and reassurance parents need.

You can purchase a copy for just $8.99 HERE. Also available on Kindle.

I would love to read this book. My youngest son was diagnosed with autism about a year and a half ago and I am still finding out new information and I believe you cant know too much.

Doctor, use biomeds, sensory based OT, speech, alternative vaccine schedule for our now 1 year old daughter.... This book could be a great resource for us!!

I am the mom of an amazing 6 year old boy with autism. He is a joy to us and all who spend time with him, and has won many hearts while changing many minds about what autism is - we would love to learn more about how we can help him be the best he can be!

Oh, wow - Dr. Sears is one of my all time favorites to turn to for information, and now an autism book?!

Thanks for writing it, Dr. S., and thanks for the chance to win, AOA!!!!

This is a topic close to my heart as many of my friends are currently going through autism diagnoses, and I am finding more and more of it in my classroom. Dr. Sears is highly respected in our circle.

I have always admired Dr. Sears. This books raises that level even higher. It's great to know that there are doctors out there who are listening to parents and doing their own review of the research and not simply using CDC and AAP soundbites as there sole information source.

As an veteran autism parent, I have been contacted for advice by countless parents whose children were just diagnosed and other new parents who are just uncomfortable with the crazy vaccine schedule. Just yesterday I referred a friend who is expecting her first child at 38 to the Generation Rescue site for an alternative vaccine schedule. She was the one who approached me with questions.

It's nice to know that there is another resource out there by a highly respected doctor that I can now recommend to many parents.

Yvonne

please enter me, sounds like a great book

Barbara

I would love to read his words of wisdom.

Amy

Wow...wow. It was Dr. Sears' "High Need Child" that gave me the first glimpse of hope and reality after pediatrician after pediatrician insisted that the only problem with my severely autistic son was his neurotic, pushy, high strung new mother who couldn't let her boy develop at his own pace. From that I read "The Baby Book and immediately implemented attachment parenting, which did wonders toward securing a foundation on which biomedical interventions then took hold. I've since given "The Baby Book" to probably 40 pregnant students and colleagues, promoting attachment parenting any chance I get. Yet, huge fan that I am, even I never expected anyone as mainstream and influential in our camp, even a little bit.

This is good. Really, really good. Year of the metal tiger, indeed.

Carrie Elsass

I get questions from newly diagnosed families every week- I'd love to have this to share!

one of a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens...

If I am the winner of this fabulous new tome, I would be thrilled to read it, then pass it on to our pediatrician who now sees children with autism, and has a son with autism himself. Even more remarkable, he was trained and did his internship under Paul Offit. Knowlege is power- put it in the right hands and sooner or later, positive changes can and do happen.

Can't wait to read this book. I have a 6yr old on spectrum. Before he was born I bought other Dr Sears books - one I still have is "Raising a Successful Child" - & I'm not giving up on that! Also have lots of friends and cousins that are preggers or have infants. It would be great to lend them a book instead of all the articles, etc I print out and randomly give them.

Natasha

Please enter me. Dr Sears is so highly regarded by so many people, being able to share it with people on all sides of the autism debate would be wonderful.

Karen

I read his "The Vaccine Book" and ordered a few to give as Baby Shower gifts, from now on. He writes in laymen's terms, using humor and authority.

I'm mom to a 2.5 year old newly diagnosed ASD child and would love to win this book. I have started a book collection which has been the inspiration for my belief and hope in recovery and have tried to purchase all the "key" autism books but it gets pricey and I would really really love to hear what Dr. Sears has to say on the issue, not to mention the autograph on my bookshelf would be really special.

Stephanie Jones

I have 2 Autistic boys- one 7 and one 2 1/2. The 7 yr old does well, the 2 yr old, not so much. I read everything I can get my hands on and it is getting costly!! Especially the books we buy for his teachers to help them understand HIM. I would LOVE a copy of it.

suzanne

This is a book that would help me alot. As a local shop that only cuts children's hair in the Bronx, I come into so many children with autisam, and i am always surprised at how many do not know all they should about the condition. I worked in the board of education in classes for autistic children, and I read extensively about it and I am always looking for ways to help children go through getting haircuts as easy as possible. This is a book I would love! http://www.someplacespecialforkids.com

Jacqueline Petty
