World Autism Awareness Day Book Review and Giveaway

 The Autism Book: What Every Parent Needs to Know About Early Detection, Treatment, Recovery, and Prevention
 Today is World Autism Awareness Day.  Chances are that you know of someone who has a child with Autism.  According to the book, 1 out of 100 children with 1 in 58 being boys are being diagnosed.  The two children that I know of personally are boys.  Autism is so devastating for parents because it is something that is unexpected and  strikes a seeming healthy child between 1-2 years of age. The child simply stops progressing through normal childhood milestones such as social and language development.

I recommend the book if you know of a child with Autism.  The book is a comprehensive guide given to detect, treat and prevent autism. The author is Robert W. Sears, MD, FAAP, is a board-certified pediatrician.  He is the author of The Vaccine Book and HappyBaby and the coauthor of The Baby Book, The Premature Baby Book, and The Baby Sleep Book.  He lives in Dana Point, California.

From Hachette site:

With clarity and compassion, Dr. Robert Sears guides the reader through the maze of autism, explaining what precautions parents can take to decrease their baby's risk, how to detect autism at the earliest possible age, and how to proceed once a diagnosis has been made. The book provides parents with a simple and clear understanding of the biomedical treatment approach that Dr. Sears has used successfully with many of his young patients. It lays out a plan for developmental, behavioral, and learning therapies; shows parents how to begin treatments without a doctor's help; presents information on vaccines and their safe use; and includes an extensive resources section.
 More information can be found at The Autism Book Website.
