About this title


Writing began in 1972 when I noticed my daughter was not talking by the age of three years. I tried to seek help and through numerous visits with the professionals, who are supposed to know everything, it became clear to me that I was repeating my story over and over again until I did not want to talk about it any more. I decided to write a book so when I met a new Social Worker, Psychologist, Psychiatrist, doctor, teacher or anyone remotely involved with challenged children, I would just hand them my book about Colleen. That way I did not have to say anything, they could read it for themselves. The book "Mama Loves Colleen" became more than a personal history concerning my daughter. I realized it involved the whole family. I saw it as a chance to help other people understand the problems that arise when you are raising an Autistic child. The book is not only about the challenges of raising an Autistic child. The book also deals with the challenges of trying to understand the workings of Community Mental Health. From the very start, they spoke a different language. I thought there was something wrong with me. Each visit with one group or another my blood pressure went over the top. I had to conquer anger, depression and the terrible urge to punch someone's lights out. I hope when you read the book you feel my anger, you understand my depression, maybe even get a few chuckles from some of my experiences with Colleen - Sylvia Kolley Following is a list of the 14 signs of Autism: 1. Difficulty in mixing with other children 2. Acts as though they are deaf 3. Resists learning 4. No fear of real dangers 5. Resists changes in their routines 6. Indicates needs by gestures 7.
