You have picked up one of those rare books that can alter the trajectory of your life. And, if you have a child on the autism spectrum, this book can certainly enable you to change the life of that special person.
What you are about to read is a very moving story of a family’s journey through autism – but it isn’t only that. It is a practical and inspirational blueprint for how you can approach a child or adult who has special challenges. There is a lot to take from this book, and I am very excited for you to take it. The messages we receive and the advice we are often given when our children are diagnosed with autism or a related challenge can be incredibly unhelpful, counterproductive, and even unkind. Without question, this was true for Sally.
The difference with her is that, after weathering an incredible array of challenges with her son, with herself, and with the people trying to help her son, Sally breaks free. And, in so doing, she is able to help her son in the most profound way.
Miracle in Slow Motion, is an inspirational story from despair to miracles, charting a mother’s deeply emotional journey on being confronted with her son’s autism. Refusing to believe the bleak outlook forecast for him, she determined to go all-out in helping him to connect and discover his real self and potential.
Part I charts the journey up to the age of eleven, where his mother started to see hope for his future. By the age of two, he was having daily meltdowns, screaming, running away, and unable to communicate his needs; by four he was diagnosed with a severe speech, language and communication disorder; at eight his school said they could not teach him and his parents should prepare for a future of assisted working. However, at the age of eleven he was talking easily, thinking of others and becoming flexible. He was also building friendships and some of his talents were starting to emerge.
Part II charts the years from eleven to seventeen, where Tim’s social skills, academic achievements and dreams were all brought to fruition. You can find out how we did this by reading the book…
