New Book

"Cuts To The Heart Of Autism" [From the publisher's press release.] Elizabeth King Gerlach suspected something was wrong. Long before her son was diagnosed with autism, she knew his behavior was Just This Side of Normal. That's the apt title of a new book by Ms. Gerlach, author of the award-winning Autism Treatment Guide. While her previous effort focused on available treatment options for children with autism, her new book zeroes in on the emotional experience of parenting a child with a profound disability. While other parents of children with autism will cheer the arrival of this book, any reader can find compassion, companionship and perspective inits pages.
