Is recovery from autism possible? Does an autism diagnosis have to mean “GAME OVER?” With answers that will amaze you, I Know You're In There by Marcia Hinds is a story you don’t want to miss:
Ryan was a young child who was severely affected by autism. He was in the third percentile for speech when he entered kindergarten and had to be taught how to smile. The “experts” said Ryan would need to be institutionalized… but they were wrong! Ryan is now an engineer at a major aerospace company and none of his colleagues would ever guess that he was once diagnosed as autistic. He is now thriving in a way no one ever imagined would be possible, and I Know You’re In There shares his incredible journey.
About the book I Know You're In There: Ryan’s parents realized something was not right with their son. They knew it before the psychiatrist predicted Ryan would end up in an institution. The autism diagnosis ripped away every dream these parents had for their child.
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) now reports, “...1 in every 50 school age children has autism.” The number of children diagnosed continues to grow in epidemic proportions. Ryan was stranded on Autism Island and his family was stuck there with him. There was no recovery from autism. There was no cure. There was no hope. Or was there?
“Our story has a happy ending, but how many parents are still told there is no hope for their children? And how many kids will not get better as a result? My family never gave up on me because, like the title of this book, they knew I was in there. When experts told them I would never be okay and probably end up in a group home, they still didn’t give up. As a result, I was able to leave my autism label behind.” –Ryan Hinds
I Know You’re In There brings hope and inspiration to the thousands of parents looking for answers to this complex medical condition called autism. There is hope and it is possible to have a different outcome for children with autism.
