Summary
"Autism is one of the fastest-growing developmental disorders in the US, affecting 1 in 68 children (1 in 42 boys) Paul's Prayers is published in March 2018 in anticipation of Autism Awareness Month (April). Paul's Prayers is more contemplative and thoughtful than many other autism-focused books, which are often filled with scientific and medical jargon, or weave an amusing tale that downplays the hardships and challenges of a family confronted with autism. Paul's Prayers offers a Christian perspective, demonstrating how a family's faith can help them accept and understand each other. With no 'cure,' families must find ways to adjust their lives to help their autistic children succeed. This memoir, told primarily from the perspective of Paul's mother, is the story of how Paul and his family have worked to give him a full life, painting intimate portraits of childhood, special education programs, family vacations, college, dating, and other challenging scenarios."--
