Synopsis: The remarkable story of how one mother, faced with the almost insurmountable learning problems of her son, battled doctors, schools, and his disabilities to give him a chance to learn.

As a scientist and therapist, Cheri Florance had the skills and training to help her patients to overcome speech and hearing difficulties. But she was not completely prepared to encounter her toughest challenge-her own son Whitney. From birth Whitney appeared unable to hear, seemed incapable of making any sounds, and was indifferent to those around him. Although the diagnosis of autism seemed to fit, Cheri could not accept the life that such a condition predicted for Whitney. She recognized something in him that no one else saw-a boy desperate to connect; a boy skilled at building models and solving problems that reflected a highly visual intelligence; a boy who was trapped by his inability to communicate.

In Cheri Florance's intense search for answers, she not only found her son but discovered something profound about the way the brain works and how we learn. Hers is a story that will resonate with any parent who has struggled to help a child, while it also illuminates the mysteries of the brain.

About the Author: Cheri L. Florance, Ph.D., is a medical speech-language pathologist, an adjunct professor of psychiatry, and clinical director of The Brain Clinic at The Ohio State University College of Medicine and Public Health. She has established an ongoing eBrain scholars program for training therapists through the City University of New York.

Marin Gazzaniga, a New York-based writer who has contributed to a variety of national magazines, is a coeditor of the critically acclaimed The Breast: An Anthology.
