In this insightful narrative, a courageous and inspiring mother explains why a diagnosis of autism doesn't have to shatter a family's dreams of happiness. Susan Senator offers the hard-won wisdom of someone who's been there and is still there today--and she demonstrates how families can find courage, contentment, and connection in the shadow of autism.

In MAKING PEACE WITH AUTISM, Senator describes her own journey raising a child with a severe autism spectrum disorder, along with two other typically developing boys. Without offering a miracle treatment or cure, Senator offers valuable strategies for coping successfully with the daily struggles of life with an autistic child.

Along the way she models the combination of stamina and courage, openness, and humor that has helped her family to survive--and even to thrive. Topics include: the agony of diagnosis, grieving and acceptance, finding the right school program, and helping siblings with their struggles and concerns.

Praise for MAKING PEACE WITH AUTISM:

"This is a book that every parent and professional working with autistic children should own, read, and reread. These children have such enormous potential in their own way. It is so refreshing that this family sees it too."
--Margaret L. Bauman, M.D., associate professor of neurology, Harvard Medical School
