Charlotte Moore has three children: the two oldest, George and Sam, are autistic; the youngest Jake is not. In this extraordinary book, which combines personal memoir with the most recent known information on this most fascinating and elusive of conditions, she describes the circumstances of their birth, behaviour, diagnosis, treatment - and what daily life is like for the whole family. Charlotte Moore happens to believe that her children were born autistic, and she explains why; but she also investigates other theories of the cause of autism, and describes the various common treatments - most of which she has tried. Above all though George and Sam offers a vivid and compelling portrait of the boys - locked in their own worlds - and their place in the family. It will be an invaluably helpful book for those parents who have autistic children, and also a fascinating one for those who don't.Biografía del autor:
