I enjoyed this book for what it was worth. This book was a little out dated but it still depicted how a family struggles with an autistic child. I am using some information in this book to add to my TED talk, the main idea of my TED talk is the advancements in medicine since the 1960's.

An excerpt from this book was included in a text on Normal Human Growth & Development I had to read in nursing school. Greenfield descriptions of Noahs behavior came to mind when my toddler began to regress- I read all 3 Noah books, which both fascinated and horrified me at the time. 25 years later, I have traveled the same road with a better outcome. Karl Taro Greenfield sibling memoir continues the story , all 4 books worth the time
