About this title

Synopsis:

"This book tells the story of one family. It's a personal journey as all these journeys are, but it generously points out a path that others may choose to follow." -Michael Compain, M.D., Rhinebeck Health Center When Randy and Deborah Robertson's young daughter, Mary, was diagnosed with autism in 2005, the initial shock momentarily immobilized them. But a determination to reclaim their daughter's life propelled them to make an unusual decision-to reverse the autism diagnosis. Finding Mary is the Robertson family's compelling true story of how they tackled the disease head-on and found remarkable success. From the initial diagnosis to Mary's incredible recovery process, Randy Robertson explains how the family explored treatment options, looked into alternative therapies, and never gave up hope. Combining the results of his in-depth research with an easy-to-understand style, Robertson shares the family's incredible journey by detailing the critical steps necessary for reducing or completely eliminating many autistic behaviors. These steps include: Testing for autism and coping with the diagnosis Getting early intervention Constructing a support team Creating an impactful IEP Embracing alternative therapies Forming academic strategies Building upon emerging strengths Visualizing success With a foreword by noted autism expert Dr. Michael Compain of the Rhinebeck Health Center, Finding Mary offers encouragement and support for families struggling to deal with an autism diagnosis. But it's also an intimate glimpse into one family's unyielding dedication to releasing their daughter from the prison of autism.
