For parents of children with autism and doctors treating autism, this groundbreaking guide will give you the tools to help your child. There was something wrong with Ryan. His parents knew it before the psychiatrist predicted he would end up in an institution. Ryan was diagnosed with autism at age four. That day changed everything. There was no recovery from autism . . . there was no cure . . . there was no hope. Or was there? I Know You’re in There tells the true story of how, through diet, applied behavior analysis, consistent and rigorous medical treatment, and more, Ryan’s family was able to overcome autism. It took a lot of trial and error, but today Ryan is an aerospace engineer, has friends, and lives a happy “typical” life. His recovery wasn’t miraculous, but instead the result of getting proper medical care, and his parents never taking “no” for an answer. Marcia provides real world examples and actionable steps to take to get your child the treatment and care that could help them beat autism. If your child has been diagnosed with autism, or the warning signs are there, which are also covered here, I Know You’re in There is an indispensable resource in your fight against autism spectrum disorder.
