This book saved my family … I don’t believe I would have have been able to do that if I hadn’t understood. Your book is a must have. If they had a first aid book bag this be the first book. I impressed a few people that day. Even my self.
If you’ve ever had questions about ASD’s or want to know how to help a friend, family or loved struggling with an autism spectrum disorder, this is THE resource that makes it simple and easy to navigate. Pamela gives clear advice and words of hope along with resources that will help you offer your families a balanced and loving life despite the diagnoses of ASD!
From the initial view of the cover, I quickly understood that this was a book which would demonstrate ways to put life back together and make life more solid. This book is certainly well written, containing numerous insights about life, for someone who has had to deal with the life-change of autism, and not. What a wonderful resource that people who deal with autism can turn to for inspiration and help toward the future.
I do know of life-change, after getting hit by a truck and laying in a coma for 37 days. Then, after awakening, having to learn to everything physical again (although, if my mind I know what to do, I had to retrain my body.) Then, 18 years later, getting hit by a truck, the second time, much of my body broken. In a large way, autism and brain injury are similar, so I see that this is a much needed book, even if you have not had to deal with either of these two areas.
Thank you Pamela, for bringing to us these words of hope. Many can learn from this wonderful book about making change work for us.

Pamela Bryson-Weaver tells a heartfelt story that can help anyone cope and thrive who has an autistic child. I like how she weaves her story, struggle, and success in a creative way. The daily reflections are powerful. Living autism day.by.day is an enlightened way to look at family harmony, health and happiness when given a diagnosis of ASD. Her book delivers powerful information in a simple and easy to format.
Not just truly inspiring, but an indispensable resource for parents of challenging children. Worth many more times the cover price.
Critical insight for every parent who has a child or relative with Autism. It took the love of a mother to dig so deep where the medical world just could not… This book can save any parent from disastrous and regretful mistakes with their children. No doubt, a must read!
