Mothers of Autistic Children Speak!
Author: Anne Tucker Roberts
Across the Spectrum is the author’s second book.
Across the Spectrum looks at six families with children on the autism spectrum over a 40 year period, from the early 1970s to the 21st century. The reader meets parents who raised their children without knowing the word “autism,” to those caught in the uncertainties of labels forging ahead to blaze trails of their own, to young parents implementing modern-day therapies.
Each story looks at a unique aspect of autism through the perspective of the mothers. Each story lays out the challenges presented by autism and the courage and love that the mothers demonstrate each day in meeting those challenges. The mothers speak with a directness and honesty, sharing stories of courage, love, perseverance and creativity – all while living lives with meaning and purpose.
