Please provide an email address. Honestly, I did not know what to expect from this book. I read it as a part of an assignment for an education course. I was never so happy to be assigned a book in my life. It is an incredibly quick read with a great deal of heart and insight. The book is the autobiographical story of a young man who was born with autism. The story is told from two perspectives, both the mother's and the boy's.
The mother's telling of her story raising her son is a brutal and honest. She is immensely forthcoming Honestly, I did not know what to expect from this book. She is immensely forthcoming about her frustration and her abusive behavior in response to that frustration. The book also discusses the mother's frustration with professionals of the time and their lack of information and willingness to blame her for the young man's situation. The parts written by the sun give a sometimes chilling insight into the world of children with autism.
The book was an amazing read. And as a parent and educator I found insight and usefulness throughout the entire book. It is a very quick read and I highly recommend it. Dec 11, Nichola rated it liked it Shelves: This older book I think is different in that it shows two sides to the same experience- that of the mother and that of the autistic son. This highly functional young man, now a journalist who describes himself as healed from autism, is able to recall many childhood incidents, his emotional reactions to them and his motivations.
The mother is able to describe seeking help for a child in a era of direct mother blame and judgment, and the scandalous ways some health care providers treated th This older book I think is different in that it shows two sides to the same experience- that of the mother and that of the autistic son.

The mother is able to describe seeking help for a child in a era of direct mother blame and judgment, and the scandalous ways some health care providers treated them. It was interesting that he was able to attend public school in a regular classroom, although many teachers expressed distress in managing him.
Not a how-to-overcome book, but very interesting report of points of view and reflection of how far society has come.

Aug 21, Holly Lindquist rated it really liked it Shelves: What sets this book apart from most narratives of parents dealing with autistic children is that part of the story is told by the child himself, Sean Barron. You get a glimpse of the motivations behind his seemingly inexplicable behaviors and a poignant insight into his complete bewilderment regarding emotional language.
It's a battle just for brief moments of connection and the daily struggles leave both parties frustrated and exhausted, but sheer obstinacy finally pays off. One of the better b What sets this book apart from most narratives of parents dealing with autistic children is that part of the story is told by the child himself, Sean Barron.
One of the better books on a difficult subject. Jan 19, Stacey rated it it was amazing. This is an incredible story. Judy Barron relates her story, as documented in her journals, of her struggles in raising a child with autism, and her son Sean provides parallel stories of his experience, shedding insight into his behavior.
Both Judy and Sean are good writers in addition to being open and honest, sharing the pain as well as the triumphs. As a clinician who works with people with autism, I think this should be required reading for everyone in the field.

May 20, Samantha rated it really liked it Shelves: I never read a book about autism quite like this. The book goes back and forth between mother and son's point of view. I never heard an autistic articulate so well what and why he was doing what he was doing. It was really interesting. At the end of the book it says the her son Sean wrote his part. I was skeptical reading it but everybody is different and different people with autism have different abilities. Nov 15, Tammy rated it it was amazing Shelves: Great insight into the mind of an Autistic person. Currently holds a job at an Ohio newspaper.
I met this author in person at an Autism event our local autism support group sponsored. He has also co-authored a book with the great Dr. Mar 31, Jenny rated it it was amazing.
I read this book because I'm going to a conference later this month where Sean Barron will be speaking. Once I started reading it, I seriously couldn't put it down. I felt his mother's fears, frustration, despair, and elation at the trials of raising her son. It amazed me to read Sean's account of why he did the things he did, how he felt during the time and being able to reflect on it as an adult.
I'm inspired by his progress, and truly can't wait for this conference! Feb 08, Cindy Christiansen rated it it was amazing. I found this book very helpful and enjoyable since I have two autistic boys of my own. I could really relate to Judy's situation and saw many facets of my oldest son's behavior in that of Sean's. It helped me to see that I am not the only one facing these types of situations.
After all these years, I'm still hoping my son will mature out of some of his behaviors like Sean did. This one had an impact on me. Jan 16, Shannon rated it it was amazing Shelves: Hopeful at the end. Dec 09, Becky rated it it was amazing.

I read this many years ago and loved it. It goes back-and-forth between the mother of an autistic boy, and the autistic boy himself. You hear about what his life was like growing up, through the eyes of his mother, and then again through his eyes. This was fascinating to me to read while I was raising a boy with autism.
Feb 03, Lauren Cottrell rated it really liked it. It really gives you hope that even in difficult situations there is still hope for anyone. It helps you realize that no matter how difficult a child may be, they still deserve love and respect. Before reading this book I didn't really understand autism. I am looking forward to finishing my book report for Psychology on this book. Jan 23, Melissa Kitchen rated it it was amazing. I enjoyed this account of "overcoming" autism, because I'd never though about that scenario beforehand. Jul 16, Mindy rated it it was amazing.
Still one of the best books available about autism. I enjoyed reading from two perspectives.
