AoA Contest: Win a Copy of Healing Our Autistic Children By Dr. Julie Buckley
Leave a comment to win a signed copy of Healing Our Autistic Children, by Dr. Julie Buckley. And don't forget that 1-10-10 is "Build a Bridge Day." Details below the jump.
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.
For more information and to order your copies, please visit Healing Our Autistic Children.
My son is the most precious jewelry in my life. I am sure that your book can help us in this path of Autism. Hope is everything that we have in the moment. When you give this book, please think about us with love. It is a wonderful gift! Happy 2010!

I would love this book! One of my son's ECI therapists wants me to talk with another mother about biomed for her child. She's still somewhat in the denial stage but is starting to realize her son needs help and has started the diet. I think this book would be a great help to her.

I have heard great things and suggestions to order and read this this book through my yahoo support group online. My 6 yr old son can benefit from it and so can all of his therapists and teachers. I'd love to have a copy of it.

I'm very eager to buy this book! I'm hoping that as a mom of a child with autism, any tips will help better my daughter's life!

Another book I've got to get!! (My birthday is on the 30th, so maybe I'll get it then, if I don't get it before...). Aren't all of us parents of autistic kids constantly "building a bridge" everyday? I know I'm constantly trying to explain to other parents, doctors, teachers & even coworkers( who do NOT have autism in their lives but) who are curious about diet,supplements & biomed/ alternative treatments for all conditions, not just autism. It's time for (all) people to open their minds & hearts to find any way we can to help people with autism, not just the kids, but the adults as well. This world would be a much better place to live in.

I would love to give this copy to my State Representative, who's office I visited a few months ago off and on for abusive behaviors of a teacher's aid that I had witnessed from showing up early to the school to pick her up, she no longer goes to that school and unfortunately the teacher's aid was not really repremanded for her ugly behavior toward my 5 yr. old daughter, but she did have to have more classes on dealing with children with a neuro-developmental disability.
