Realizing that she'd have to become a detective, Jenny spoke with many doctors, parents, governmental agencies, and private foundations, and became an expert at Google research. At last, she discovered a combination of behavioral therapy, diet, and supplements that became the key to saving Evan from autism. Here, she shares her experiences and knowledge and offers a roadmap for other concerned parents.

As a grandma of a newly diagnosed Autistic grandson, it was enlightening and educational to hear Jenny's journey in helping her son. As heartbreaking as it is; it is also breathtaking to see her perseverance pull her son through the window. It gives us hope! Thanks you for sharing your story. We are on that journey now. And we will pull him through that window too! Many blessings to you and you son! ❤️
this explains exactly the same things happening to my son.. its sad and still happy cause you realize you are not alone . VERY helpful book.!!!
she even sounds a little like Jenny. too funny.. :)
i bawled my eyes out.
I will DEFINITELY read ALL of her book on Autism!!!
Jenny talks in a straight-up honest voice about the road of autism and what she's done to face it with her son. I found myself laughing and crying through the entire book. At times I'd say "atta girl" or "good for you" since I've walked in those same shoes. We've dealt with autism for five years now and I remember one special education teacher telling me "you have to be the voice for your daughter. You've got to be your child's advocate and push to get results." Jenny does just that.
Her heartwarming story gives you hope and even though we've been living with this for so long even I picked up something new...her experience with a gluten free diet has inspired me to give it a try.
Jenny's book helps you realize even celebrities aren't immune to bad things that happen. She's speaks like one of us and you understand that we're all in this together and change can happen when you take charge.
I highly recommend Jennys book to everyone including those who don't deal with autism spectrum disorders. Her point of view lets you understand what the familes go through rather than shy away from them.
Great job Jenny! Spoken like a true mom!

Although I understand Jenny McCarthy's personal turmoil dealing with her son's autism, I find it unfortunate that she felt she needed to resort to vulgar language to tell her story, thereby limiting her audience. Parents need all the support they can get but don't need to be subjected to the offensive language of this author.
