MY SON, SAM: Valleys and Victories in Autism
ACCEPTING PRE-ORDERS NOW. In this powerful, heartfelt book, author Terrie Bentley McKee spills her heart onto the page in describing the valleys -- and victories -- in parenting a child, then a teen, then an adult, who has autism, bipolar disorder, and intellectual disability. She describes his signs and symptoms at 17 days old, and how she had to fight to get him evaluated at six years of age, though she knew in her mama's heart something was "off." The book describes his public school experience, and his brief homeschooling journey the last semester of his senior year of high school. Born in 1994, Sam is now an adult, but they're still experiencing the valleys and victories of autism. In the book, Terrie gives tips and ideas on how parents can cope with the daily struggles of having a child/teen/adult on the spectrum while simultaneously fighting for them. AVAILABLE FOR SALES/SHIPPING IN NOVEMBER 2023.
