April is Autism Awareness Month

April is Autism Awareness Month and one of the Boissevain Books LLC titles is about autism,
A Meaning for Danny - a book not for children, but for their parents.

In Brigid Marlin's son's case, the autism was combined with epilepsy and was therefore difficult to treat. The drugs for either illness accentuated the symptoms of the other.

Autism is not easy to deal with in any case. A mother who seems to be coping with TWO autistic sons has written about their story so far here. She notes that autistic children often call out the best in other people and she calls their ability to do this a "superpower".  She blogs about her experience caring for her sons at Life with Greyson and Parker.
