When she was told that her 20-month-old son had autism, Dr Andrea Libutti was devastated. Therapists said he would never communicate with others, nor would he ever form meaningful relationships. Still, Andrea refused to accept that dim prognosis and instead embarked on a years-long journey of discovery and healing. Using her position as a physician to gain access to a variety of specialists, she explored every promising biomedical and behavioural therapy. Eventually, she came to see that we must consider autism not just from a physical perspective but from an emotional and spiritual one as well.
In Awakened by Autism, Andrea distills the results of the research she undertook and relays her personal experiences as she tried one treatment after another in search of a way to help her son. She shares her understanding of the multifactorial nature of autism and the problems inherent in how many health-care professionals view the condition - all culminating in her ultimate revelation: that each child has unique needs and requires a personalised plan for healing.
More than just a practical guide to our children's health, Awakened by Autism is a starting point for healing ourselves and our world. It calls for a paradigm shift surrounding our beliefs about the possibilities for those with autism, allowing us to uncover their hidden brilliance while taking steps to improve their well-being.
With the help of this book, we can heal our families beyond all expectations.
